This document is another of several reports of intercepted communications from the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV) after the Gulf of Tonkin Incident, in which the DRV attacked US Naval vessels. This was an order going out to help out another vessel and offer protection. This was similar to another report, but the boat numbers don’t match, so it must have been a different damaged PT boat.

The Gulf of Tonkin Incident prompted the US Congress to pass the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which gave President Johnson authority to use military force to defend allies in the area and ultimately lead to the beginning of the Vietnam War.
