Airborne Jumps In Vietnam

Out of curiosity, was there any jumps made in Vietnam ? If there was, I imagine it must have been pretty rough landing with that type of terrain to jump in.

BTW.........I don't know if this subject was covered before or not, I've was away from this site for a while

Yes, it has been discussed in several threads. Do a search on the topic.

The 173d Airborne Brigade conducted a combat jump during Operation Junction City.

True, and 5th SFG MIKE Forces did several, MACVSOG did several, elements of 11th Pathfinder Company did 12, and the French did more than all these units combined.

But we've covered it all, I think, on more than one thread.
