Otherwise, fine condition. By 1971, popular discontent over the continuing American military involvement in Vietnam, combined with the apparent reduction in US-Soviet tensions known as détente, convinced some US Senators, notably Democratic Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana, that it was time to reduce the level of American military forces in Europe. In a series of votes on the so-called Mansfield amendment, Senator Cotton, a Republican from New Hampshire, had sided with President Nixon in opposing these cuts, which both felt would be perceived by the USSR as a sign of American weakness.
