Operation Game Warden
Start Year
End Year

Operation Game Warden, Task force 116, was an operation to deny Viet Cong access to the resources in the Mekong Delta which was conceived of in December 1965. U.S. naval forces, backed by Marine artillery on the ground, launching a rapid surprise attack on the dozens of small Viet Cong ports which were scattered around the Delta. Unprepared in the face of intense U.S. firepower, which included U.S. F-4 Phantoms dropping special illumination bombs which blinded the Viet Cong deck gunners, leaving to them being unable to accurately return fire on the attacking U.S. craft, the Viet Cong were incapable of mounting a stiff resistance. Much the Viet Cong fleet and its operators were destroyed.

Personal Memories

On 03 March 1968 an LCPL patrol boat was sunk in the Cua Viet River about 3 miles east of Dong Ha. The incident is reported in the US Naval Forces Vietnam History:
"[the boat], sweeping close to the west bank of the Cua Viet River channel, approximately 2-1/2 miles northeast of Dong Ha, hit an estimated 500-pound mine. The craft, which was flipped upside down by the force of the explosion, suffered extensive damage to its bow and starboard side, and was later designated a total loss. Six crewmembers were killed and one was severeluy wounded as a result of the incident."
