The last American combat deaths of the Vietnam War occurred more than two years after the US combat role in Vietnam ended, and two weeks after the fall of Saigon. The May, 1975 SS Mayaguez incident was an action embroiled in politics, a trial by fire for young marines, navy corpsmen and airmen, and, for many, a symbol of the frustration and heroism of a painful era in American history.

  1. Thank You. I did lose friends there from NKP, I was there 73-74 with the 56Th SPS. I never knew how much of the incident was a real lack of concern. Makes me feel sorry for the families. I have been retired for over 25 years but, I still shudder at the lack/uncaring of our government to sacrifice lives.
