The USMC VMA-121 "Green Knights" and their A-4 Skyhawks were ferried to Chu Lai Air Base in South Vietnam and began operations on December 1, 1966. On June 4 1967 the squadron was redeployed to Iwakuni, Japan until September 5, 1967, when they returned to Chu Lai AB for another tour. On January 31, 1969 VMA-121s Vietnam tour ended when they left for MCAS Cherry Point, NC where they were re-equipped with Grumman A-6 Intruders and designated VMA(AW)-121. On October 4, 1968 A-4E became the property of VMA-223 “Bulldogs” also at Chu Lai AB.

The Douglas A-4 Skyhawk was a carrier capable light-attack bomber designed for the US Navy and Marine Corp. First flown in June 1954, the A-4s combat career began with carrier-launched raids over North Vietnam in 1964.
