conclusion
Conclusion
  • I think that the U.S. Air Support played a big role in the Vietnam War by aiding injured troops, taking out enemy bases from above, bringing the troops supplies, and transporting troops and ammunition. The new air tactics learned in the Vietnam War were used throughout the rest of the Twentieth Century and are still used today.
