Not "most" of the incidents. ALL of them. There isn't a single,
documented instance of this from the 60's or early 1970's. It was all
made up by Hollywood which put it in one of its Nazi propaganda films.

As someone you served in the military in Vietnam during the Tet offense,
many of us there began to have doubts about the possibility of a US
victory. As far as how we were greeted upon our return to the US, most
of the incidents of being spit on and insulted fall in the realm of
urban legend. Those of us who were won over to leftist politics were
given a warm welcome. What attacks that Vietnam veterans received were
at the hands of the ruling class in the form of government foot dragging
in awarding us our VA educational and other benefits, and by industry
and business engaging in discrimination, by not being overly eager to
give us employment.
