When the incident became public knowledge in 1969, it prompted widespread outrage around the world. The massacre also reduced US support at home for the Vietnam War. Three US servicemen who made an effort to halt the massacre and protect the wounded were denounced by US Congressmen, received hate mail, death threats and mutilated animals on their doorsteps. Only 30 years after the event were their efforts honored. The massacre is also known as the Massacre or sometimes as the Song My Massacre. The US military codeword for the hamlet was Pinkville.
