No one used to say, "Republic of South Vietnam", or "I'm going to South Vietnam", it was usually said as, "I'm going to Vietnam", hence the word Vietnam...when in reality we w…ere headed for SOUTH Vietnam, Vietnam was two separate countries. North and South Vietnam were simply countries in the south eastern portion of Asia (on the continent of Eurasia).. You certainly weren't going to NORTH Vietnam. Not unless you were either an aircrewman or pilot. Those men actually fought in the skies of NORTH Vietnam. Aerial dog-fights (air combat) over South Vietnam rarely if ever happened. Nearly, if not all, of our POWs were airmen shot down over NORTH Vietnam.
Vietnamization, an American term first used in the spring of 1969 by Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird to describe the policy, strategy, and programs adopted by the administr…ation of Richard M. Nixon for the Vietnam War. Vietnamization entailed the progressive withdrawal of U.S. forces from South Vietnam combined with efforts to enhance the training and modernization of all South Vietnamese military forces to enable the government of South Vietnam to assume greater responsibility for the conduct of the war. The policy also encompassed U.S. support for Saigon to more vigorously pursue rural pacification and development to win the loyalty of the peasants and to strengthen its political base through village and hamlet elections, social and economic reforms, and expanded social services. Under General Creighton W. Abrams, who succeeded General William C. Westmoreland as the overall U.S. military commander in South Vietnam in June 1968, allied military strategy under Vietnamization emphasized operations to weaken the enemy's capabilities by attacking its logistical bases in South Vietnam and neighboring Cambodia and Laos. Operations such as the May 1970 American ground http://wiki.answers.com/topic/incursion into Cambodia and the January 1971 South Vietnamese incursion into Laos, Lam Son 719, were justified as means to gain additional time for Vietnamization to progress. These operations only temporarily disrupted the enemy's plans. The poor showing of Saigon's forces in Lam Son 719 cast doubt on the http://wiki.answers.com/topic/efficacy of Vietnamization, as did the heavy http://wiki.answers.com/topic/reliance of Saigon's forces on U.S. airpower to repulse North Vietnam's 1972 Easter offensive. Vietnamization was a useful facade for the withdrawal of American forces from Vietnam between 1969 and 1973. However, despite the extensive equipment the departing U.S. forces turned over to Saigon's armed forces, the latter were ill prepared after 1973 to face North Vietnamese forces in the absence of sustained, direct American military support.
