Air Force Security Police In Vietnam

  Air Force Security Police fighting off an all out Viet Cong attack at Tan Son Nhut AFB in Vietnam during the 1968 Tet Offensive in which American forces virtually destroyed the Viet Cong as fighting force. Air Force SP's also fought big battles at Bien Hoa AFB at which one SP earned the Medal of Honor posthumously defending Bunker #10 before everyone in the bunker was killed. Virtually all airbases were attacked during the Tet Offensive. Air Force Security Police are trained to not only guard Air Force weapons, weapon's systems, and resources but to defend bases from enemy attack.
