The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps strongly influenced the conduct and outcome of the Vietnam War. Naval aviation-Navy and Marine Corps-figured prominently in air operations against the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) and Communist forces in Laos, and in support of U.S. and allied troops fighting in the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam).
Operation Rolling Thunder would become one of the longest sustained aerial bombing campaigns in history. And it would be a failure. Those responsible for that failure included President Johnson, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, the Washington-based national security/intelligence establishment, and the senior U.S. military commanders in Asia.
