Mobile Riverine Force in Vietnam, part 1 on VBC Happy Hour
One of the most imaginative, unique, and successful elements of the US war effort in Vietnam was the Mobile Riverine Force (MRF), a joint Army-Navy venture in the Mekong Delta launched in 1967. Joining us to talk about the MRF are self-described “old River Rats” Cliff Fejfar and Ed Werle, as well as Jeff and Shannon Arballo, who are completing a documentary about the MRF. We’re going to talk about the 9th Infantry Division, the Brown-Water Navy, and the war in the Mekong Delta. , the first major joint Army-Navy operation in history.
