Introduction

The U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War lasted 15 years.

 I teach this section about the physical and cultural geography of Vietnam as an introduction to my History of the Vietnam War class.

In addition to teaching about the geographical regions, the students are asked to relate the regions to the type of US involvement in those regions during the Vietnam War.

I find it to be useful knowledge when I have guest speakers visit the class to talk about the war.  When the veterans tell the students the region in which they fought, the students understand that region's geography.
