When they were evacuating Saigon during the collapse in April 1975. Although President Ford's use of US Marines, Navy, and Air Force in May during the Mayaquez incident might be the official date. This latter action was involving Cambodian forces and in the sea off Vietnam...possibly because US forces were pulled from the Vietnam AO (Area of Operations) and used for this drama, it is considered part of the war.

A military note of interest: Apparently some US jets strafed and bombed some Cambodian Naval patrol boats during the action. One or two were sunk, aerial photos identified them as "ex-US Navy Swift Boats" (PCF-Patrol Craft Fast) which were of the type used by the USN Brown Water Navy's riverine forces during the Vietnam War.
