Striking the Viet Cong in Tay Ninh Province

Striking the Viet Cong in Tay Ninh Province Visual Arts Geography Social Studies World History

In 1962, the United States was providing financial aid to South Vietnam.  With that aid, South Vietnam was able to purchase military products to use in a war against the North. 

Sometimes South Vietnam’s war efforts resulted in strikes within South Vietnam’s own territory. 

In this image, from the U.S. National Archives, an air-ground strike (involving South Vietnam's paratroopers) against “Viet Cong” (guerillas from North Vietnam) is taking place in Tay Ninh Province, about 45 miles northwest of Saigon.  This photo provides an aerial view of the target area.
