Archive for the category “JFK Vietnam Policy”


On December 14, 1961, JFK announced the US would increase aid to South Vietnam.  

This policy would include expanding the role of American forces in that country by providing training of South Vietnamese troops by US military “advisers”.  

JFK accepted most of the suggestions of his military advisers except their recommendation for deployment of  8000 U.S. combat troops in South Vietnam. 

 In November 1963, the U.S. had 16,000 military “advisers” in South Vietnam but still no “combat” troops.

I want to announce that I have created a second “blog” on JFK.  This one is devoted to the assassination of President Kennedy. 

 I invite you to check this blog out. Please follow this link:


On December 14, 1799, George Washington died at Mount Vernon.
