The agency created these files in order to prepare a number of reports. This series contains data from daily and weekly Operations Summary Reports (OPREP-5) sent by teletype from Military Assistance Command-Vietnam in Saigon. The data document naval gunfire support missions in South Vietnam during the Vietnam Conflict and the shore bombardment of North Vietnam as part of Operation Sea Dragon and subsequent bombardments. The files consist of one record for each firing mission and include i nformation on: the date and beginning and ending times of the firing mission; the type of the firing ship; name of mission; type of operation; name and hull type of the warship; aircraft sortie data; target information; enemy war casualties; friendly battle casualties; and ordnance expenditures. Beginning on January 31, 1968, the files also include information on provinces, air sorties, and ordnance expended. Primary responsibility for maintenance of this series transferred from the National Military Command System Support Center to the Data Processing Division when that unit was created around 1970. This data comprises government records extracted from the Archival Research Catalog (ARC). See the ARC catalog entry for this series for more information on this data and how to order it.
