    Correct. The combat troops were pulled out just before Nixon resigned in disgrace. South Vietnam fell to the North and the war was LOST under FORD.
    March 1973




    The last American combat soldiers leave South Vietnam, though military advisors and Marines, who are protecting U.S. installations, remain. For the United States, the war is officially over. Of the more than 3 million Americans who have served in the war, almost 58,000 are dead, and over 1,000 are missing in action. Some 150,000 Americans were seriously wounded.

    1974

    January 1974




    Though they are still too weak to launch a full-scale offensive, the North Vietnamese have rebuilt their divisions in the South, and have captured key areas.

    North Vietnamese resupply and fortify their forces
    August 9, 1974




    President Richard M. Nixon resigns, leaving South Vietnam without its strongest advocate.

    December 26, 1974




    The 7th North Vietnamese Army division captures Dong Xoai.

    1975

    January 6, 1975




    In a disastrous loss for the South Vietnamese, the NVA take Phuoc Long city and the surrounding province. The attack, a blatant violation of the Paris peace agreement, produces no retaliation from the United States.

    The North Vietnamese flag flies over Phouc Long
    March 1, 1975




    A powerful NVA offensive is unleashed in the Central Highlands of South Vietnam. The resulting South Vietnamese retreat is chaotic and costly, with nearly 60,000 troops dead or missing.

    During March




    Another NVA offensive sends 100,000 soldiers against the major cities of Quang Tri, Hue and Da Nang. Backed by powerful armored forces and eight full regiments of artillery, they quickly succeed in capturing Quang Tri province.

    North Vietnamese armored forces
    March 25, 1975




    Hue, South Vietnam's third largest city, falls to the North Vietnamese Army.

    Early April 1975




    Five weeks into its campaign, the North Vietnamese Army has made stunning gains. Twelve provinces and more than eight million people are under its control. The South Vietnamese Army has lost its best units, over a third of its men, and almost half its weapons.

    April 29, 1975




    U.S. Marines and Air Force helicopters, flying from carriers off-shore, begin a massive airlift. In 18 hours, over 1,000 American civilians and almost 7,000 South Vietnamese refugees are flown out of Saigon.

    A helicopter lifts off from inside the U.S. Embassy grounds
    April 30, 1975




    At 4:03 a.m., two U.S. Marines are killed in a rocket attack at Saigon's Tan Son Nhut airport. They are the last Americans to die in the Vietnam War. At dawn, the last Marines of the force guarding the U.S. embassy lift off. Only hours later, looters ransack the embassy, and North Vietnamese tanks role into Saigon, ending the war. In 15 years, nearly a million NVA and Vietcong troops and a quarter of a million South Vietnamese soldiers have died. Hundreds of thousands of civilians had been killed.

    The American people turned against the war, or at least the Leftists did, just as they did in Afghanistan and Iraq. American is not likely to win another war again, and they haven't for a long while.
    Perhaps if war was declared we might win.
    The last declaration of war was one that we won with our allies World War Two.

    Ford was President when South Vietnam fell. The war that 50,000 Americans died for was lost under his watch.

    By the way, your link says the program was 'significantly expanded' in 1996. I suppose you don't know who was president then either.
    Wrong... The first cell phones went to welfare families during the Bush administration in a program called "SafeLink Wireless."
    This matter is resurfacing now, but it was originally debunked back in 2009 by Factcheck.org. Presently thinkprogress.org has taken the lead charge in debunking this myth.

    As it happens the "Obama phone" actually was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2008. The program is called "SafeLink Wireless." An article from August 2008 confirms this.

    How could it be an "Obama phone" when, at that time, the president had barely won the nomination two months prior?

    Once again the GOP has reacted without having the facts, and once again they are holding an empty sack.

    So you feel that Ford should have continued the war in Vietnam, a la LBJ?

    Yes, I know you are a member here but shouldn't you be debating a topic where you have some knowledge?

    .
    The communists started the war with the French as a rebellion against their colonial rule.
    You are the one who just told everyone that the Democrats started the Vietnam war. Are you a "leftist"? You seem to be pretty "keen" on blaming fellow Americans for starting it.

    I feel that we never should have been involved in a civil war in Southeast Asia at all.
    I was correcting your erroneous error filled post.
    It appears that I know a whole lot more about the Vietnam war than you do.
    I've not been debating you ...I've been correcting you.

    So all those people shouting out for free Obamaphones should have been shouting out for free Bushophones? But in any case it was started under Reagan, expanded under Clinton, modernized under Bush and continued through Obama. It was well intentioned but, like many government giveaways, became corrupt. The same is true of food stamps.

    Yes, you are gifted with 20/20 hindsight.

    Oh really? This from someone who blames Gerald Ford for the loss in Vietnam.
