Abstract:

The purpose of this research is to identify USAF personnel recovery strategic and operational lessons during the American operations in Southeast Asia, from 1964 until 1976. First, the study shows how the United States was initially ill-prepared to conduct search and rescue in this operation. It took the USAF several years to develop aircraft, equipment, training and tactics to become successful in Southeast Asia.
