During the years the 121st Aviation Company served at Soc Trang (1962 to 1970) there were many accounts of dedication, skill and heroism. Many awards, both unit and individual, were given by a grateful nation in recognition of the contributions of this outstanding unit and the men who served her. Finally, in October 1970 the 121st Assault Helicopter Company (AHC) stopped reporting operationally to the 13th CAB. They started receiving missions from the local Vietnamese National Air Force (VNAF) Wing. Their primary mission was to train Vietnamese officers and enlisted men in the details of the transport side of the 121st AHC’s mission (gunships were not transferred to the VNAF). In December 1970, with the transfer complete, the 121st AHC ceased operations. See 121st Aviation website for more information and unit details.

The U.S. Navy performed a wide array of missions in the Vietnam War. In the air, it was a key partner with the U.S. Air Force during the Rolling Thunder and Linebacker air campaigns against North Vietnam, and in other air operations in Laos and Cambodia. On the coast, it developed a highly effective blockade to prevent the resupply of enemy forces by sea, engaged in naval gunfire support missions against enemy targets in the littoral areas of Vietnam, and provided amphibious transport for Marines operating in I Corps. On the rivers, it stood up several task forces designed to protect commercial traffic, assist allied ground forces in pacifying these areas, and interdict enemy troops and supplies moving on these inland waterways. The U.S. Navy also supported the war effort with a massive sea and riverine logistics operation, built and managed shore facilities throughout South Vietnam, and provided extensive medical support for the allied military operation
