“First Wave: Leatherneck helicopter Squadron 164 and infantrymen of the 5th Marine Regiment, are the first elements into the zone, November 20, during Operation Meade River, about eight miles southwest of Da Nang. More than 75 helicopters of the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing lifted 3,500 Leathernecks into pre-designated zones in approximately two hours.”
