Australia sent over 8,000 troops to Vietnam; they provided most of the military support after the South Koreans.

The Republic of Korea provided most of the soldiers for the US conflicts. New Zealand sent nearly a thousand soldiers and troops to South Vietnam because they want to prove their commitment to the US, and they were also against a communist taking over Vietnam. Thailand had almost 12,000 combat troops in Vietnam; they were the closet ally to the US.

The allies of the United States during the Vietnam War are South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, South Vietnam, and all of the other countries that are anti-communists. The Vietnam war is considered to be a very costly conflict that resulted in a very long war. It seems that this has stemmed from the conflict that was also occurring because of the cold war.

The cold war started with the issues of the United States with the Soviet Union. In the year 1964, the United States also decided to become involved in the Vietnam War. In the beginning, it was only North and South Vietnam that was against each other, but as time went on, more and more countries became involved in the war.
