The Vietnam War in U.S. History and Memory The Vietnam War continues to haunt U.S. national memory During President George W. Bush’s 2006 visit to Vietnam, the one nonofficial event he attended was a 15-minute visit to the Joint  P.O.W./M.I.A. Accounting Command, which searches for the  remains of the 1,800 Americans still listed as missing in the  Vietnam War.
