Vietnam Veterans by State

Of all the veterans living in the United States in 2018, the majority of them served during the Vietnam War (1964—1975). There were 6.4 million service members who served during the Vietnam war that now live in the United States, including those who were not actively deployed. In 2019, the total population of United States veterans was 17.4 million. 

The Vietnam War was fought on the Vietnam Peninsula, in Asia. The communist North Vietnamese were fighting against the South Vietnamese and their primary ally, the United States. Over three million people died during the Vietnam War, including more than 58,000 Americans soldiers. Of those who survived and returned to the United States, or who were born later, in Vietnam, many suffered terribly from exposure to chemicals, like Agent Orange.
