"It is difficult to say when the first poems about the Vietnam war were sent to Pacific Stars and Stripes by American troops in the war zone.  They began trickling in to the newspaper office in Tokyo from time to time around 1962, but it was not until the large buildup of troops in Vietnam in 1965 that the trickle became a torrent..."
