The Vietnam War  was a Cold War military conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955  to 15 May 1975 when the Mayaguez Incident concluded and two weeks afterthe fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. The Mayaguez incident involving the Khmer Rouge government in Cambodia on 12–15 May 1975, marked the last official battle of the United States (U.S.) involvementin the Vietnam War.
