Someone called Forrest was there Allegedly ...

In Washington, D.C. nearly 100,000 people gather to protest the American war effort in Vietnam. More than 50,000 of the protesters marched to the Pentagon to ask for an end to the conflict. The protest was the most dramatic sign of waning U.S. support for President Lyndon Johnson’s war in Vietnam. Polls taken in the summer of 1967 revealed that, for the first time, American support for the war had fallen below 50 percent

The American people were fed up with a war that had no goals.
At least it was a war we were not being allowed to win.
The sons fighting in Vietnam are the children of ww2 vets. Those vets had a reason to fight and knew what war looked like.
