US Army Vietnam (USARV)
5 February 1966 - 15 May 1972.
Yellow and red are the colors of Vietnam.
The blue center represents the United States. Together with the sword,
it alludes to the United States Military in Vietnam. USARV was created
and arrived on 20 July 1965, setting up their headquarters in Long Binh
and absorbing the functions of MACV. Upon departure from Vietnam on 15 May 1972,
the United States Army could look back to over twenty years of involvement
in the civil and military affairs of this country. They suffered some 58,000
casualties in the process. From 15 May 1972 until departure on 28 March 1973,
the command was re-designated "Vietnam (USARV/MACV) Support Command" due to
the downgrading of the United States military effort in Vietnam.
