Vietnam War Dictionary


U.S. Navy SEALs (Sea, Air Land) served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1972, primarily in the Mekong Delta. They operated in 7 man teams, were typically well camouflaged and carried a tremendous amount of firepower. The SEALs fearsome appearance and extraordinary combat success prompted the Viet Cong to nickname them "Devils with Green Faces".
