Trouble with this is ok, if the US made friends with Ho there would have been an insurgency fully bankrolled by the USSR somewhere else, as much as the US was humiliated by Vietnam the USSR was shitting it's pants quite soon as their supposedly awesome technology and battle doctrine got cut to pieces.
For example they thought their SAMs would completely wipe US air power from the skies, this did not happen despite them releases more and more advanced models to Vietnam via China which they did not want to do for fear of reverse engineering
Also as to the US military's performance, they always saw it as a sideshow and rotated most junior officers out after only six months, the idea being to get as many of them blooded as possible in preparation for World Wart Three in Germany rather than being effective in that actual theatre
