25th Infantry Division Vietnam Patch
In December 1965, the 25th Infantry Division was deployed in force to South Vietnam at the request of MACV.
During 1966 and 1967 the division engaged in operations to destroy communist forces within their Area of Responsibility while engaging in humanitarian missions to support the Vietnamese people. In fall 1966 the division took part in Operation Attleboro, which was the largest unit operation of the war at that time. Fighting was heavy in the jungles of Vietnam, where the enemy could blend with either the jungle or civilians to hide. In late January 1968, enemy forces began a major offensive against allied forces. Occurring during Tet, the Vietnamese New Year, combat areas now included cities as well as the deep jungle. In April 1970 the division took part in operation Bold Lancer, which took the Vietnam War into neighboring Cambodia to destroy enemy sanctuaries previously immune from attack. Thousands of tons of supplies were captured and base areas destroyed before the division returned to Vietnam by June of that year. In December 1970 the division began leaving Vietnam, with 2nd Brigade being last to depart in April 1971. During its time in Vietnam, the division was credited with participation in 12 campaigns and decorated twice with the Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Palm. "Tropic Lighting" saw 21 of its soldiers receive the Medal of Honor for their bravery.
