Son Tay Raid Silver Star Medal Grouping of SFC Marion S. Howell U.S. Army Special Forces...

(Son Tay Raid Medal Grouping)Vietnam Son Tay Raid Silver Star Medal Grouping of SFC Marion S. Howell U.S. Army Special Forces...Operation Ivory Coast was a failed rescue mission conducted in North Vietnam during the Vietnam War by United States Special Operations Forces and other elements of the U.S. military.

On 21 November 1970, a joint United States Air Force/United States Army force commanded by Air Force Brigadier General LeRoy J. Manor and Army Colonel Arthur D. "Bull" Simons landed 56 U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers[1] by helicopter in the Sơn Tây prisoner-of-war camp located only 23 miles (37 km) west of Hanoi, North Vietnam. The mission's objective was the recovery of 61 American prisoners of war thought to be held at the camp, situated in an area where 12,000 North Vietnamese troops were stationed within 5 miles (8.0 km).[6] The mission failed when it was found during the raid that all the prisoners had been previously moved to another camp.

The specially selected raiders extensively trained and rehearsed the operation at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, while planning and intelligence gathering continued from 25 May to 20 November 1970.[7] Despite the absence of prisoners, the raid was executed with a high degree of success,[8] incurring only two minor casualties and the loss of two aircraft, one of which had been part of the plan from the start.[5][9][10] Criticism of intelligence failures to determine that the camp was empty of U.S. POWs, both public and within the administration of President Richard M. Nixon, led to a major reorganization of the United States intelligence community a year later.[11]
