By the time the last batch of American soldiers pulled out of Vietnam in March 1973, the war had entered its 103rd month. It was the longest in American history till 9/11 happened and triggered the Afghan war in October 2001. Earlier this month, on 7 June to be precise, the Afghan war completed 104 months and there are no signs of a pullout. This makes it the longest in American history.
