There was one soldier in the Army who received the Navy cross during the Vietnam conflict. His name is COL (retired) Kenneth Ledford Jr. In Vietnam, he was a First Lieutenant, and he was a medevac, or "dust off" pilot. After retiring from The military, he became a teacher, and an instructor for the JROTC program. I was fortunate enough to have him as a JROTC instructor while I was a student at Pontiac Central High School. - SGT Christopher Ramos, US Army.

The US was bombing North Vietnam, and the US Army, US Marine Corps, US Navy, and US Air Force was in mutual combat with the North Vietnamese Army, Navy, and Air Force. The US is NOT bombing Iraq (as an enemy), and is NOT trying to destroy the Iraqi Army, Air Force, or Navy. Said another way: The US was at war with North Vietnam; the US is NOT at war with Iraq.

Just like the US. The Republic of South Vietnam had an Air Force, Navy, Army, and Marine Corps (supplied and trained by the US).

South Vietnam had: an Air Force; Marine Corps, Navy, and Army.
