The Vung Ro Incident

Awarded For Service During the Operation Period, 18 Feb 1963
Due to the exceptional work of Army, Air Force and Naval personnel performing with outstanding service, proof was finally obtained that enemy forces were re-supplying their cadre using sea routes and isolated ports. The discovery of enemy re-supply at Vung Ro enabled Allies to conduct unrestricted joint operations to counteract further enemy efforts to violate United Nations prohibitions against infiltration intended to oppose and subvert the Republic of Vietnam. The combined efforts of Army, Air and Naval forces after this incident rendered impossible all future attempts by Northern aggressors to use sea lanes for re-supply.
