For the Marine Corps grunts, the Snuffys, in the Southland of Vietnam, Riverine warfare in the Delta region took on many different shapes and forms. The coastal islands, mangrove and nipa-palm
swamps, creeks, rivers, a bewildering maze of inland waterways, and the Vietnamese jungle, imposed an extraordinary military challenge. The Snuffys of the Marine Corps River Force were not
“heroes”, only men doing what they had been trained to do, and to survive meant being one of the lucky ones, nothing more, nothing less.
