The Vietnam war ended April 30, 1975, but when the soldiers returned home, they did not expect what they got. People spat on them and splashed paint on them. IT WAS NOT THEIR FAULT THEY HAD TO GO TO WAR!!! I know this happened many years ago, but I felt the need to share. Thanks for reading!
Yes, this was a real problem, not just in America but in Australia and probably other allied countires as well. The vietnam war was lost, and many people thought it should never have been fought in the first place but the return soldiers were not to blame. Many were conscripted and did not even have any choice about being there.
The return soldiers were treated abominably. It was a shameful peice of history.
