Huntsville in Madison County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Huntsville Madison County Veterans Memorial
Despite dwindling political and public support for the war, American troops fought bravely against a tough foe and never lost on the battlefield. By the late 1960s, American forces began to withdraw and the war was increasingly turned over to the South Vietnamese. Only after the complete departure of U.S. troops in 1973 and drastic cuts in military support to the south were communist forces able to achieve victory in April 1975. Over 350,000 American military personnel were killed or wounded.
