Tropic Lightning..


Tropic Thunder (5/10) - Never Go Full Retard..

In response to a request from the U.S. Military Assistance Command in Vietnam, the division sent 100 helicopter door-gunners to South Vietnam in early 1963..By August 1965, further division involvement in the coming Vietnam War included the deployment of Company C, 65th Engineer Battalion, to South Vietnam to assist in the construction of port facilities at Cam Ranh Bay.. By mid-1965, 2,200 men of the Tropic Lightning Division were involved in Vietnam..

Vietnam War (Vietnamese Perspective) The Face of the Enemy..

In response to a MACV request, the division deployed the 3rd Brigade, a Reinforced Task Force, with 5,150 infantrymen and 9,000 tons of equipment from Hawaii in 25 days to the Northwest sector of South Vietnam to firmly establish a fortified enclave from which the division could operate.. Operation Blue Light was the largest and longest airlift of personnel and cargo into a combat zone in military history before Operation Desert Shield..Schofield Barracks has a tropical savanna climate...., tag him and bag him..I don't read the script..The script reads me..This is insane..And why am I in this movie?..We're supposed to be a unit!..You understand what I'm saying to you?...
