I have been looking this up. It seems you are very right. And this makes me sad.

It looks like opposition to the Vietnam war faded as the military went to voluntary troops. So, the antiwar movement was a more or less selfish movement of people who did not want to be drafted. And as we have a fully volunteer military in the US, we won't have that level of antiwar movement - and the antiwar movement didn't even do anything... ugh.
