Initially in Vietnam as advisors, the Marines forces grew with the need to protect the key airbase at Da Nang. After the Gulf of Tonkin incident, more troops arrived and the Marines began to engage in the counterinsurgency effort with small-scale pacification units. Combined Action Platoons – comprised of U.S. Marines and Vietnamese soldiers – were a novel concept that the Marines brought.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Marine_Corps_Recruit_Training United States Marine Corps Recruit Training, commonly known as "boot camp", is a 13 week program of initial training that each recruit must successfully complete in order to join the United States Marine Corps. All enlisted individuals entering the Marine Corps, regardless of eventual active or reserve duty status, will undergo recruit training at one of the two Marine Corps Recruit Depots (MCRD): Parris Island, South Carolina, or San Diego, California. Male recruits from the 8th, 9th and 12th recruiting districts (predominantly areas west of the Mississippi River) are sent to MCRD San Diego. All recruits from the 1st, 4th and 6th recruiting districts, are sent to Parris Island... Marines generally hold that their recruit training is the most physically and mentally difficult amongst the Uniformed Services, citing that it is longer than the other branches, requires a more demanding Physical Fitness Test (PFT), and has the strictest height and weight standards. Furthermore, only the Marines require 500 meter marksmanship qualification, while the Army requires 300 meter qualiication and the others significantly less... Overview Daily schedule An average day typically begins before sunrise. Reveille is sounded and all recruits present themselves for accountability. After personal hygiene and morning clean-up, recruits will perform physical training (only on Monday through Saturday). After the morning meal, the recruits begin the day's scheduled training, which may include classes, drill, or martial arts. On Sundays, recruits are offered the morning to attend various religious services and personal time (often called "Square-Away Time"). After the noon meal, the day's training continues until the evening meal, typically around 1700 to 1800 (5:00 to 6:00 pm). After this time, recruits will have hygiene time to shower, clean their weapons, and clean their barracks. Recruits also get roughly 1 hour of square away time after this, personal time for recruits to engage in personal activities such as preparing uniforms or equipment, writing letters, working out, or doing laundry. Recruits are not free from their Drill Instructors (DIs) or allowed to leave the squad bay during this time. In preparation to sleep, recruits may hydrate, pray together for five minutes, ensure footlockers and rifles are locked, and often recite the Rifleman's Creed or Marines' Hymn before hitting the rack. Lights-out can range from 2000 to 2200 (8:00 to 10:00 pm), depending on the next day's activities. Organizational structure Recruits are organized by regiment, battalion, company, platoon, squad, and often fireteam. A Recruit Training Regiment is composed of three recruit training battalions (at Parris Island, there is an additional battalion to train female recruits). All three of the male battalions are made up of four companies, while the female battalion comprises three. Each company is broken down into two series, designated as Lead and Follow, which may have between one and four platoons, depending on the number of recruits in the company at the time the training cycle begins... Each series is broken down into a number of platoons, usually from two to four in each. These platoons will be the basic unit for recruit training, assigned a four digit number as identification. Drill instructors are assigned to each platoon, and will usually stay from the beginning to the end of training. The Senior Drill Instructor of each platoon will select recruits to billets of responsibility, to mimic command and staff positions of a Marine unit. The selections often change on the whims of the drill instructors, and can include: - the platoon guide, the senior-most recruit responsible for carrying the platoon's guidon - four squad leaders, each in charge of one-fourth of the platoon; they may choose to further subdivide their squads into four-man fire teams - a scribe, responsible for maintaining administrative records such as the interior guard schedule - a whiskey locker recruit, responsible for maintaining the platoon's supplies - house mouse, who cleans the normally off-limits drill instructors' offices..

Historical Background / Context: The Vietnam War (aka the Second Indochina War) was a Cold War-era military conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was fought between North Vietnam - supported by the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China - and the government of South Vietnam - supported by the United States and other anti-communist countries. The communist Viet Cong, a South Vietnamese political organization and army aided by North Vietnam, fought a guerrilla war against the United States and the South Vietnamese forces. The Vietnam People's Army (North Vietnamese Army) engaged in a more conventional war, at times committing large units into battle. The North Vietnamese government and the Viet Cong were fighting to reunify Vietnam under communist rule. The U.S. government viewed American involvement in the Vietnam conflict as a way to prevent a communist takeover of South Vietnam with the aim of stopping the spread of communism. The U.S. Marine Corps served an important role in the Vietnam. Individuals from the USMC operated in the Northern I Corps Regions of South Vietnam. Portions of the Corps were responsible for the less-known Combined Action Program that implemented unconventional techniques for counter-insurgency and worked as military advisers to the Republic of Vietnam Marine Corps. Marines were withdrawn from Vietnam in 1971, and returned briefly in 1975 to evacuate Saigon. US Marines at Khe Sanh, Vietnam | 1968 | US Marine Corps Documentary in Color

The U.S. Marine Corps is one of the four branches in the U.S. Department of Defense as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It is one of the seven uniformed services of the United States. The Marine Corps has been a component of the U.S. Department of the Navy since 1834, working closely with naval forces for training, transportation, and logistics. The USMC operates posts on land and aboard sea-going amphibious warfare ships around the world, and several of the Marines' tactical aviation squadrons, primarily Marine Fighter Attack squadrons, are also embedded in Navy carrier air wings and operate from the Navy's nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. Two battalions of Continental Marines were formed on 10 November 1775 in Philadelphia as an Infantry force capable of fighting for independence both at sea and on shore. The role of the Corps has since grown and evolved, expanding to aerial warfare and earning popular titles such as "America's third air force" and "second land army". The Marine Corps has distinguished itself as it has served in the majority of American wars, from its inception to the modern era, and attained prominence in the 20th century when its theories and practices of amphibious warfare proved prescient and ultimately formed the cornerstone of the Pacific theater of World War II. By the mid-20th century, the U.S. Marine Corps had become a major theorist and the dominant practitioner of amphibious warfare. Its ability to rapidly respond on short notice to expeditionary crises gives it a strong role in the implementation and execution of American foreign policy. The USMC has around 194,000 active duty members and just under 40,000 reserve Marines as of 2010. It is the smallest of the U.S. Armed Forces within the U.S. Department of Defense... Vietnam War The Marine Corps served an important role in the Vietnam War taking part in such battles as Da Nang, Hue City, Con Thien and Khe Sanh. Individuals from the USMC operated in the Northern I Corps Regions of South Vietnam. While there, they were constantly engaged in a guerrilla war against the Viet Cong, along with an intermittent conventional war against the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). Portions of the Corps were responsible for the less-known Combined Action Program (CAP) that implemented unconventional techniques for counter-insurgency and worked as military advisers to the Republic of Vietnam Marine Corps. Marines were withdrawn in 1971, and returned briefly in 1975 to evacuate Saigon and attempt a rescue of the crew of the Mayagüez. Vietnam was the longest war for Marines; by its end, 13,091 had been killed in action, 51,392 had been wounded, and 57 Medals of Honor had been awarded. Due to policies concerning rotation, more Marines were deployed for service during Vietnam than World War II. While recovering from Vietnam, the Corps hit a detrimental low point in its service history caused by courts-martial and non-judicial punishments related partially to increased unauthorized absences and desertions during the war. Overhauling of the Corps began in the late 1970s, discharging the most delinquent, and once quality of new recruits improved, the Corps focused on reforming the NCO Corps, a vital functioning part of its forces...

This U.S. Marine Corps film chronicles Operation Dewey Canyon, which was the last major offensive by the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War. It took place from January 22 through March 18, 1969 and involved a sweep of the North Vietnamese Army (NVA)-dominated A Shau Valley by the 9th Marine Regiment reinforced by elements of the 3rd Marine Regiment. The 56 days of combat were a tactical success but did not stop the overall flow of North Vietnamese men and matériel into South Vietnam. The 9th Marine Regiment and attached units were awarded the Army Presidential Unit Citation for their actions in Operation Dewey Canyon. Dewey Canyon would be a three-phase operation. In Phase I, the regiment would move into the area of operations and establish fire support bases for the supporting artillery of the 2nd Battalion, 12th Marines (2/12). Phase II would consist of patrolling near the fire support bases and aligning the infantry units for a jump-off into the next phase. Phase III called for a conventional three-battalion advance southward, with the infantry units moving overland rather than by helicopter because heavy anti-aircraft defenses in the area of the Phase III objectives made movement by foot preferable to General Davis' usual concept of high-mobility heliborne operations. But because the area was in the remote southwest corner of Quang Tri Province, helicopters would still be critical in the early phases and in resupplying the troops on the ground. In the long history of the Vietnam War, Dewey Canyon stands as one of the most successful American operations. Casualties, however, were heavy for both sides. Officially, 1,617 NVA were reported killed and five captured, while 130 Marines were killed and 920 wounded. The Marines had effectively disrupted a major enemy logistical center in Base Area 611, including in their total haul more than 1,000 NVA small arms, some 807,000 rounds of ammunition and about 220,000 pounds of rice. Marine fixed-wing aircraft flew 461 close air support missions, and Marine helicopters flew nearly 1,200 sorties. U.S. Army helicopters also flew numerous sorties in support of the Marines. The artillery fired about 134,000 rounds during the operation. This expenditure of effort proved worth the cost, as NVA plans for a big 1969 spring offensive in the I Corps Tactical Zone were derailed and, in fact, the Communists could launch no such offensive in the northern provinces that entire year. A major enemy attempt to strike at the population centers east of Base Area 611 had been forestalled by Dewey Canyon.

This film proudly shows the USMC operating at the best of its abilities in conflict zones, with brave men struggling against enemies, and working hard to save the lives of their compatriots. In 1965 the U.S. Marines were deployed in two separate battles to stall communism -- in the Dominican Republic and Vietnam. New and advanced military strategy was deployed, like helicopter assaults (seen at 12:07) and Expeditionary Landing Fields also known as ELF (Seen at 12:40). An embedded journalist asking a soldiers what possessed him to run into the paddies, who replies "I'm a Marine." :45 A pilot prepping for amputation, calmly speaking as he talks about carrying his leg, followed by bloodied up soldiers being placed on the back of a truck 1:20 Narrator opens, “1965 was a year like no other in history, fleet Marines were committed to combat in both hemispheres at once.” Photos of Marine deployment in the Dominican Republic and Vietnam. 2:45 The Caribbean in April, 1965 turns from friendly paradise to unrest and upheaval threatening the hemisphere. 3:10 President Lyndon Johnson addresses the nation about taking out a communist government in the western hemisphere. 4:01 Units from the USS Boxer are able to react on a minute’s notice. Spearhead platoon sets up defense perimeter around the American embassy and of civilians in our hotel. U.S. citizens are evacuated immediately. 6:36 We’re returned to the scene of the soldiers being carried in the back of the jeep. Four wandered outside on the International Line where two soldiers are sent back for medical attention but the two Americans are held as prisoners, the U.S. marines are hostile. The Dominicans apologize for the shooting via radio and ask the Americans to keep their line. 8:14 We hear the voice of a soldier narrating about a sniper who couldn’t aim and they left him alone for the sake of safety. Didn’t want the enemy replacing him with someone who could shoot. 9:36 Soldiers are now in a very different much more hostile terrain in full camo and heated firefights. We watch as soldiers are belly down in the trenches shooting out enemy fire. 11:05 The difficulty of the terrain is explained, from swamp to tropic jungles and desert. Helicopters are the lifeline of survival and transport through the difficult terrain. 12:40 Navy CBs deploy the expeditionary landing field, ELF, everything is preformed and air transportable. They put down 8k feet of runway and everything that would be necessary to build a carrier deck ashore. 13:50 Skyhawk jets arrive and can begin action almost immediately. They deploy to support ground troops in the field. There is a pilot on the ground pin pointing targets for the jets and giving them locations by radio. The objective is to minimize delay between a call for air support and arrival. 15:57 Missiles, carriers and phantom jets are showcased as the New Breed to describe the 1960s Marines. Phantom can break the sound barrier and the armament they carry is highly flexible. A great deal of precaution is taken to minimize casualties. 17:49 We are returned to the footage of the soldier (now revealed to be a Colonel, apparently a USMC pilot) being prepped for amputation, he is calmly speaking as he is told that the medic will do all he can to save that leg. We see operating room footage. He explains how he was injured by asking to hold fire -- to not drop napalm -- while he asked the women and children to leave the area. He was still in the field when they caught a round. 19:20 Naval Missiles are shooting and the soldiers are shown doing large scale offenses. Marines are trained to seek out the enemy and apply a tactic called Virtual Elimination of Organized Combat Capability. 20:30 A helicopter comes near the ground in the middle of the jungle as troops jump out and then we see them engaged in short range rocket fire against the enemy. 21:15 The young soldiers are praised for their intelligence and capabilities. 21:50 A mix of footage and dialogue as the scenes cut in and out of real battle situations,22:25 Soldiers carrying a wounded brother and applying first aid as the others watch on. A radio call for a chopper is called in and the soldier is taken and brought in for help 23:42 “Marine casualties have been light in Vietnam.”. Soldiers locate Vietcong fighters as the VC soldiers are restrained and taken prisoner. They are described as formidable, hardened and cold. Tunnel systems are shown as well as Viet Cong prisoners.25:55 The soldiers enter the villages and try to communicate peace and kindness.27:10 American soldiers guard farmers as the harvest and the solders help bring the crops in. 27:44 Navy doctors and Corpsmen are in a clinic helping children with wounds and sickness as the music turns from dire to uplifting. The kids are given Christmas presents from the soldiers, donated by American families. 28:55 Pictures of numerous soldiers faces are shown and we come to an abrupt end.

It shows land and river patrols and a successful raid on a Viet Cong base camp. It emphasizes the importance of patrol actions in maintaining contact with an elusive enemy. Historical Background / Context: The Vietnam War (aka the Second Indochina War) was a Cold War-era military conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was fought between North Vietnam - supported by the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China - and the government of South Vietnam - supported by the United States and other anti-communist countries. The communist Viet Cong, a South Vietnamese political organization and army aided by North Vietnam, fought a guerrilla war against the United States and the South Vietnamese forces. The Vietnam People's Army (North Vietnamese Army) engaged in a more conventional war, at times committing large units into battle. The North Vietnamese government and the Viet Cong were fighting to reunify Vietnam under communist rule. The U.S. government viewed American involvement in the Vietnam conflict as a way to prevent a communist takeover of South Vietnam with the aim of stopping the spread of communism. The U.S. Marine Corps served an important role in the Vietnam. Individuals from the USMC operated in the Northern I Corps Regions of South Vietnam. Portions of the Corps were responsible for the less-known Combined Action Program that implemented unconventional techniques for counter-insurgency and worked as military advisers to the Republic of Vietnam Marine Corps. Marines were withdrawn from Vietnam in 1971, and returned briefly in 1975 to evacuate Saigon. US Marines Against the Viet Cong | US Marines on Patrol in Vietnam | USMC Documentary
