Mayaguez
A U.S.- registered merchant vessel was seized by the Cambodians and towed to Cambodia. The U.S. responded by sending a one thousand-man force to free the Mayguez and its crew. The U.S. forces arrived to find the crew gone. The Cambodians subsequently agreed to release the U.S. personnel, but there had been a loss of thirty-eight crewmen dead in the episode.
