WALTER CRONKITE, with map of S.E. Asia in background. The Vietnam War (and this image) dominated the nightly news throughout my entire childhood, to the point where I just assumed that the war was permanent...and that it was normal to, at age 10, 12, 15 have a war going on that started before you were born and would go on for the rest of your life. To people my age, It wasn't just a war - it was a fixture of life.

The Vietnam War was a Cold War-era military conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. American involvement escalated in the early 1960s, with troop levels tripling in 1961 and tripling again in 1962. 58,220 U.S. service members also died in the conflict.
