Today in Coast Guard History – December 27

  • 1968 – In October 1968, the United States Air Force requested additional LORAN-C coverage in Southeast Asia and by 27 December 1968 the Coast Guard had received authorization to proceed with the project. This led to the construction of a number of LORAN sites in the area, including South Vietnam, in an operation code-named Tight Reign.
