By that reasoning Ed, I guess we could go back to the battle for Dien
Ben Phu (sp), when the US supported the French with air assetts and
other aid. I thought the reference was to the overt fighting war in VN.

Again, partially off topic (VN) but we sent advisors and engineers to
VN as early as late 1955 and by 1958 had a growning presence there of
Special Forces, plus engineers laying out future air bases, ports,
etc as well logistics people setting up requirements. These troops
operated in civilian clothes/sterile fatigues and carried passports
identifying them as civilian workers for this or that private company
or government agency.
