Operation New Arrivals


Operation New Arrivals

Operation New Arrivals (April 29–September 16, 1975) was the relocation of more than 120,000 Vietnamese refugees from Pacific island staging areas to the United States.

Following the South-Vietnamese evacuation Operations New Life and Babylift at the end of the Vietnam War, refugees were relocated to the United States to begin assimilation into American society. 251 C-141 and C-130 flights and 349 commercial flights airlifted the refugees to camps around the United States.[1] These camps included Camp Pendleton, California (opened April 29),[2][3] Fort Chaffee, Arkansas (opened May 2), Eglin Air Force Base, Florida (opened May 4), and Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania (opened May 28). The operation relocated, supported and sheltered the refugees until civilian agencies were able to resettle them.[4]
