The Great Compromise.
For the first time since the US Civil War, the US Navy created a "Brown Water Navy" to operate separately from their "Blue Water Navy" (Regular Fleet). While the regular… fleet provided air strikes (aircraft carriers); and the battleship (USS New Jersey), cruisers (8 & 6 inch guns), destroyers (5 inch guns) provided naval gunfire support along the Gun Line; the Brown Water Navy operated the Riverine Forces consisting of Swift Boats (PCF-Patrol Craft Fast/all aluminim 50 footers), PBR's (Patrol Boat River-all fiberglass 32 footers), Alpha Boats (ASPB-all steel constructed Assault Support Patrol Boats), and Monitors (River Battleships). The ALPHA Boats were the only original "built just for Vietnam" (Made in Oregon) riverine boats, and were built to withstand River mines. Thusly, they often led the way down the rivers, as Mine Sweepers. Only one Riverine boat is suspected of being destroyed by North Vietnamese Aircraft: PCF-19 was possibly sunk by a NVAF helicopter in a running gun battle.

Aircraft Carriers and the US Navy's Brown Water Navy (Riverine Forces).
For the communists, yes.

US Navy warships worked the gunline off the North and South Vietnamese coastline. North of the DMZ was called YANKEE station; South of the DMZ was termed DIXIE station. Not c…ounting the thousands upon thousands of jet air strikes launched by the aircraft carriers, the surface warships of the fleet delivered millions of 5", 6", and 8" artillery shells from the gunline. The US battleship USS New Jersey fired nearly 6,000 16" shells during her tour of duty in Vietnam. The battleship's 2,000 pound shells equated to dropping a one ton bomb over enemy territory during the war. The New Jersey had been activated to reduce US aircraft losses over North Vietnam, while still delivering the payload required to defeat the enemy. Lastly, the US Navy operated it's Brown Water Navy in the Mekong Delta of South Vietnam. The Brown Water Navy's riverine forces engaged communist forces thru-out the river systems of South Vietnam using their Swift Boats and PBR's, Alpha Boats and Monitors. Although no US warships were sunk during the war (two were bombed by NVAF MiG-17's however); many US Navy riverine boats were sunk or destroyed in action (in battle).
The states that were crucial to the constitutions success were New York, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Extremely! Without them, the poor air force would've had to transport every tank, field gun, airplane, jet, helicopter, parts, vehicles, fuel, food, ammunition, and men to and… from Vietnam. Additionally, without the Navy, the (again) poor ole air force would've had to pound the enemy (in both the north and south) with rockets and bombs. And, to be accurate, the air force would've suffered astronomical LOSSES of aircraft during the course of the war. So "astronomical" that the USAF would probably have been either physically defeated or just plain unable to do the job. Just one very small example, to prove a point: in 1966 the US lost approximately 1,000 jets in Vietnam. The US battleship USS New Jersey was activated and deployed to the gunline, delivering the equivalent of nearly 6,000 two thousand pound bombs WITHOUT the risk/loss of a million dollar jet and the man that flew it. Without that battleship, jets and men would've been lost delivering those loads. Answer: Apparently it wasn't. The US lost the war in VietNam withdrawing its troops in April 1975.
Divers served in various positions, some served on the coast serving to clear mines and obstacles or to recover sunken ships or planes shot down. Many others served on TF-116 …and other units on small water craft such as PBR's or the "brown water navy" patrolling the various rivers and waterways all across the delta, they also assisted SEALS and other special operations forces during infil, exfil and other operational needs. They also recovered aircraft that were shot down in the various waterways.
The Great Compromise, or Connecticut Compromise, which stated that both a House of Representatives (in which the number of representatives a state got was determined based on …it's population), and the Senate (in which each states got that same number of representatives and votes), by Roger Sherman, which settled a dispute between the Virginia Plan, backed by James Madison (which supported the states' number of votes be based on population), and the New Jersey Plan, backed by William Paterson (which supported the same number of votes be given to each state). The Virginia Plan would give more power to the states with a higher population, like Pennsylvania and Virginia, which would leave small states without much of a say. The New Jersey Plan gave equal power to all. This combination would be crucial in the passing and rejecting of many bills and laws in the years to come.
