59. That tracks with my memory (as a kid in the 70's watching this)...

...I'm not going to argue about whether there were spitting incidents, because there are always assholes, but any such were isolated. The real "denigration" of Vietnam vets was from the older set with the "we won our war" attitude so they didn't even count the new guys as "real" vets. I know some vets group posts wouldn't even let them join. Not all of course, but this was a hell of a lot more widespread than hippies, much less spitting ones.
