US Military men first commenced operations in 1955. US jets (F-100 Super Sabres) began blasting South Vietnam in 1961. US jets commenced "openly" bombing North Vietnam in 1964.

The F100 Super Sabre was the longest serving IN CONSTANT combat aircraft in US history; fighting for 10 straight years (1961-1971).
