On the day of August 2nd, 1964, a U.S. destroyer called the "Maddox" was attacked by North Vietnamese boats. This took place in the Gulf of Tonkin.
Shortly after, another incident was underway. These attacks were most likely to delay, if not stop weapon transport to the United States.
As a result of these attacks, many U.S. lives were lost.
Boats were destroyed, along with the weapons that were to be transported.
All of these costs were beginning to add up to total at around $2 million each month.
This continued and eventually resulted in immediate inflation of the Vietnam War.
