Naval aviation played a crucial role in the Vietnam War. Aircraft carriers floating 185 kilometers southeast of Cam Ranh Bay have what the sailors called Dixie Station, fling ground support and interdiction missions in South Vietnam. A few hundred miles to the north at Yankee Station, as many as five carriers at a time targeted North Vietnam. At 140 kilometers offshore, Yankee Station seemed eerily removed from the war despite the fact that pilots returned bloodied and battered or did not return at all. The war was somehow distant, out of mind, over the horizon. Yankee Station was base for all US Naval aircraft taking part in Operation Rolling Thunder. That concentrated bombing of North Vietnam lasted more than three years, from March 1965 to November 1968

By 1968, 536,000 draftees and volunteers filled the ranks of the units fighting the war in Southeast Asia. When regular infantry units began to arrive in Vietnam, the U.S. Army had not fought a real conflict of any significance since the Philippines insurrection at the turn of the century. The first American combat troops arrived in country wearing uniforms and foot gear designed for the parade ground, not this war's battleground
