Biden didn’t protest or fight in Vietnam. Now he’s making a crucial visit.
Joe Biden did not serve in the military during the Vietnam War. At the time, he was an outspoken critic of the war and the military draft. As President, he will be making a historic trip to Vietnam in November to advance the US-Vietnam diplomatic and economic relationship. He plans to discuss efforts to combat climate change, reduce economic inequality, and deepen the unbreakable bonds between the two nations.
