April 30, 1965

1965: After a political crisis flared into a revolution in the Dominican Republic, the US intervened to protect and evacuate American and foreign citizens. The US also provided medical aid and other assistance. TAC and MATS transports flew 1,702 sorties to airlift 16,000 passengers and 16,086 tons of cargo to the island.
The Dominican Civil War (Spanish: Guerra Civil Dominicana), also known as the April Revolution took place between April 24, 1965, and September 3, 1965, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It started when civilian and military supporters of the overthrown democratically elected president Juan Bosch ousted the militarily installed president Donald Reid Cabral from office.
