River Patrol (Restored Color) US Navy Mekong Delta Operations 1967

US Navy Mekong Delta Operations

The labyrinthine Delta was a hot zone in the war against well organized Viet Cong insurgents, immortalized by the film “Apocalypse Now.” This beautifully photographed film is the real thing — a “slice of life” documentary showing daily operations aboard the Harnett County and on river patrols by air & water. The USS Harnett County (LST-821) served as a floating base in the China Sea for PBR and helicopter patrol operations in the Mekong Delta during the Vietnam War.
