Besides just being luck of the draw, it might very well be that Korea and Vietnam weren't thought of as being the kind "good war" that WWII was. In other words, being a WWII vet counted a whole lot more on your president-to-be resume than being a veteran of either of those two wars do. And we didn't win either of those wars, so you're not one of the victors.
