Television brought the brutality of war into the comfort of the living room. Vietnam was lost in the living rooms of America - not on the battlefields of Vietnam. - Marshall McLuhan, 1975
Above all, Vietnam was a war that asked everything of a few and nothing of most in America. - Myra MacPherson, 1984
Within the soul of each Vietnam veteran there is probably something that says "Bad war, good soldier." Only now are Americans beginning to separate the war from the warrior. - Max Cleland
I do not believe that the men who served in uniform in Vietnam have been given the credit they deserve. It was a difficult war against an unorthodox enemy. - Gen William C. Westmoreland
No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now. - Richard M. Nixon 1985
We are at war with the most dangerous enemy that has ever faced mankind in his long climb from the swamp to the stars, and it has been said if we lose that war, and in so doing lose this way of freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment that those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening. - Ronald Reagan, 1964
Let us understand: North Vietnam cannot defeat or humiliate the United States. Only Americans can do that. - Richard M. Nixon, 1969
All the wrong people remember Vietnam. I think all the people who remember it should forget it, and all the people who forgot it should remember it. - Michael Herr, 1989

"Those Americans who went to Vietnam fought for freedom, a truly noble cause. You and your comrades-in-arms who faced danger and death in Vietnam fought as well as any Americans in our nation's history.

Vietnam was not so much a war as it was one long battle in an ongoing war -the war in defense of freedom, which is still under assault. This battle was lost not by those brave American and South Vietnamese troops who were waging it but by political misjudgments and strategic failure at the highest levels of government.

The tragedy- indeed, the immorality-of those years was that for the first time in our history our country and its government failed to match the heroic sacrifice of our men in the field.

This must never happen again."

- Ronald Reagan
