Amphibious Forces

Task Force 76 of the Seventh Fleet was responsible for amphibious action during the Vietnam War. Using transport and cargo ships, helicopters, tank landing ships, and dock landing ships, Task Force 76 carried out large numbers of amphibious assaults, especially in I Corps where the Marine Amphibious Force was operating. Amphibious forces, including Task Force 76 and Task Force 76.8, assisted in the removal of refugees from Cambodia and South Vietnam, as well as American personnel, during the evacuations of 1975.
