#1 - add a comma after "Minh" -- however, the sentence is not accurate. The US was not in Vietnam right after World War Two.
Read the paragraph right before the section called Vietnam War.
#2 - You need to add "In the 1960's" at the beginning of this sentence. In addition, "advisers" were sent by the US at first, and soldiers were sent later. The fighting between north and south began earlier than this.
