    The U.S. Marine Corps provided ground, air, supply, and logistic support in the Vietnam War for over two decades as part of III Marine Amphibious Force. 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.

At the time the Marines of 3rd Battalion expected a typical 13-month deployment followed by a quick return to the States. However the battalion found itself caught up in the initial deployment of Marine units to Vietnam, and landed on May 12 along the coast south of Danang at an airfield called Chu Lai. The battalion's first major operation in the Vietnam War was Operation Starlite where they teamed up with units of the 7th Marines. Operation Starlite was aimed at destroying the 1st Viet Cong (VC) Regiment, which was preparing to attack Chu Lai from the Van Tuong peninsula. The fighting began on August 18 when the battalion conducted an amphibious landing just east of the VC positions. At first the attack was slowed by effective VC delaying tactics. However, 3rd Battalion eventually advanced to the outskirts of the village of An Cuong 2. While attempting to clear the village, India Company came under intense fire from VC defending the village. When one squad under Corporal Robert E. O'Malley was ambushed, O'Malley jumped into a VC trench and personally killed eight Viet Cong. Wounded three times, O'Malley refused to be evacuated until all his men were safe and was later awarded the Medal of Honor. India Company then had to fight its way back to the rest of the battalion through other Viet Cong units still operating in the area. Around 1200, an H&S Company supply convoy bound for India Company was ambushed and a force sent to relieve them was also pinned down. The ordeal was covered by journalist Peter Arnett in his article "The Death of Supply Column 21". During the afternoon the situation was stabilized and the Viet Cong retreated that night, resulting in a tactical American victory. The United States had 52 Marines killed in Starlite. India Company lost 14 dead, including the company commander, and 53 wounded out of a force of 177 Marines. Three Navy Crosses were awarded to Marines from the battalion for actions during Starlite, including the battalion commander LtCol Joseph Muir. Search and Destroy Near Da Nang (1965--1966) Following Starlite 3rd Battalion continued to conduct regular sweeps and low-level (i.e. small unit) combat operations against the Viet Cong (usually the 1st VC Regiment) in the greater Da Nang area. In November they participated in an amphibious operation similar to Starlite called Blue Marlin (II), which was carried out near Hoi An. Contact was irregular as the VC attempted to avoid a drawn-out engagement and the battalion only had three Marines wounded. Then in December the battalion moved to the Que Son Valley for Operation Harvest Moon, preventing the VC from capturing the town. Among the casualties suffered during this period was LtCol Muir, who was killed when he stepped on an IED. In March 1966, 3rd Battalion participated in Operation Kings, officially a search and destroy mission in the An Hoa region, but really an attempt to create a long-term occupation in a historical Viet Cong stronghold. However, any progress gained in Kings was immediately negated by the Buddhist Uprising just one week later in Da Nang. In July, the battalion acted as a blocking force during Operation Macon but did not see significant action. In August, 3rd Battalion left Vietnam for Okinawa. The battalion would not be gone long though, and in early October was stationed offshore as BLT 3/3 near the northern portion of I Corps to combat a possible North Vietnamese invasion. The threat never materialized and BLT 3/3 returned to Vietnam later that month...

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

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND / CONTEXT Following the conclusion of Operation Starlite, on 24 August 1965, Marine intelligence concluded that the 1st Viet Cong Regiment had withdrawn into the Batangan Peninsula. The plan of operations was for a Battalion Landing Team of the 1st Battalion, 7th Marines to land across White Beach north of the Peninsula and push south, while 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, would be helilifted in by MAG-16 to set up blocking positions 4 km inland. 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines would remain available as a floating reserve. The Army of the Republic of Vietnam 2nd Battalion, 4th Regiment and the 3rd Vietnamese Marine Battalion would be helilifted into the south of 3/7 Marines to clear and search the An Ky Peninsula. The Operation Piranha was launched on 7 September 1965, the amphibious landing was unopposed, while the landing of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam force received some minor ground fire. On 8 September, Company B 1/7 Marines discovered a Viet Cong field hospital in a large cave near the center of the Peninsula. The Marines captured four prisoners, but then came under fire from other Viet Cong in the cave. The Marines returned the fire and attempted to convince the Viet Cong to surrender. Marine engineers then placed explosives in the cave. After the detonation, the Marines counted 66 eliminated Viet Cong inside. The operation concluded on 10 September, 178 Viet Cong had been eliminated and 360 enemy and suspected enemy had been captured. Allied casualties were only two Marines and five South Vietnamese soldiers. The operation failed to wipe out the 1st Viet Cong Regiment, villagers told the Marines that Vietcong units had been in the area but had left, some less than 24 hours before Operation Piranha had commenced. Intelligence reports later indicated that the 1st Viet Cong Regiment began leaving the peninsula on 4 September, coinciding with the increased movement of the amphibious ships at Chu Lai Base Area. About the Vietnam conflict: 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 U.S. and South Vietnamese forces relied on air superiority and overwhelming firepower to conduct military operations, involving ground forces, artillery, and air raids. The United States conducted a large-scale strategic bombing campaign against North Vietnam. 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 War. 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. Direct U.S. military involvement ended on 15 August 1973 as a result of the Case-Church Amendment passed by the U.S. Congress. The capture of Saigon by the North Vietnamese Army in April 1975 marked the end of the war. North and South Vietnam were reunified.

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.

USMC film MH-10422 Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. 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 The United States Marine Corps (USMC) is a branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for providing power projection from the sea,[8] using the mobility of the U.S. Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. 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...
