Operation Portrex, the largest peacetime maneuvers in history and the first to employ airborne troops in an amphibious operation, was brought to a climax with a combined amphibious and airborne assault on Vieques Island. The Joint Armed Service Exercise, which began 20 February and extended through 14 March, was staged to evaluate joint service doctrine for combined operations, to service test new equipment under simulated combat conditions, and to provide training for the defense forces of the Caribbean Command.
