Primary service involved, US Army
Operation MATADOR
South Vietnam
Description: Due to the lack of enemy resistance and because the series of trails and way stations still needed to be searched and destroyed, the infantry conducting operation MATADOR started using company and platoon sized air assaults. This enabled more terrain to be searched by a battalion for a given period of time.
