 Wikipedia: Vietnam War
The program of covert GVN (South Vietnamese) operations was designed to impose "progressively escalating pressure" upon the North, and initiated on a small and essentially ineffective scale in February 1964, according to standard sources.
The active U.S. role in the few covert operations that were carried out was limited essentially to planning, equipping, and training of the GVN forces involved, but U.S. responsibility for the launching and conduct of these activities was unequivocal and carried with it an implicit symbolic and psychological intensification of the U.S. commitment.
The Pentagon told President Johnson on November 27, 1965 that if planned major sweep operations needed to neutralize Viet Cong forces during the next year were to succeed, the number of American troops in Vietnam needed to be increased from 120,000 to 400,000.

 Vietnam War - LearnThis.Info Enclyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Bound up with the lack of official war status was the concept of escalation, which used the analogy of an escalator rising slowly but steadily to facilitate gradual entry into warfare as opposed to the traditional declaration of war with its attendant widescale mobilization and straightforward hostilities.
The United States Congress continued to vote appropriations for war operations, and the Johnson Administration claimed these actions as a proxy, along with Tonkin, for the Constitutionally mandated requirement that Congress retain war power.
Politically, the advantage of escalation to those who wanted to be engaged in the war was that no individual instance of escalation dramatically increased the level of U.S. involvement, so the U.S. populace was lead to believe that the most recent escalation would be sufficient to "win the war" and therefore would be the last.

Some F-105 squadrons were operated from the Da Nang air base in South Vietnam for a short period of time early in the war, but they were then relocated to Thailand.
There weren't enough to go around at first, but operational tests showed that an F-105 only needed to carry one, as long as there were enough aircraft in the package to provide overall coverage.
Wild Weasel Thuds were in the thick of the action, generally operating in hunter-killer teams with Phantoms to make the most of the limited numbers of F-105Fs still available for combat.

Movements in Grenada were dubbed Operation Urgent Fury - which, on its own, sounds pretty inspiring - but the adjective-noun combination began to persist with the 1989 manhunt of ousted Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega, called Operation Just Cause.
The practice of giving operation names to U.S. troop activities started during World War II when separate names - really cool names like "Flintlock" - were given to movements in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters.
The JCS assigns each of these organizations a series of two-letter sequences and requires that the first word of each two-word operation name begin with a letter pair from one of the sequences.

Most of the action in this map found its way to some temple ruins at the center of the level, with several different floors and a considerable amount of outdoor areas to snipe from.
