Profile America — Thursday, August 7th. On this date 50 years ago, the U.S. Congress passed one of its most controversial joint resolutions -- one that was regretted in hindsight and overturned in January 1971. It was the so-called Tonkin Gulf Resolution, authorizing nearly unlimited military action in South Vietnam and leading to quick escalation of our involvement in that country. More than 9 million Americans served in the military during the nine-year Vietnam era, and nearly 2.6 million of them served in South Vietnam at some point. The peak American presence was recorded in early 1969, with over 540,000 service members assigned to the war-torn country. There are over 21 million military veterans in the U.S. Some 7.3 million are veterans of the Vietnam era.
