The former US Coast Guard vessel "Point Cypress" gets a Vietnamese crew as the flag of the Republic of Vietnam is raised over the bridge for the first time. The ship was among some 800 transferred to the Vietnamese Navy since the start of Operation ACTOV (Accelerated Turnover to the Vietnamese) in November 1968.
