This Provider was one of the occupants of AMARC's "Celebrity Row" in 1987. It had been used on Operation Ranch Hand during the Vietnam War. This involved using aircraft to spray an estimated 20 million U.S. gallons (76,000 m3) of defoliants and herbicides over rural areas of South Vietnam in an attempt to deprive the Viet Cong of food and vegetation cover.
