RMK-BRJ
RMK-BRJ was an American construction consortium of four of the largest American companies, put together by the United States Navy during the Vietnam War to build critically needed infrastructure in South Vietnam so that the Americans could escalate the introduction of American combat troops and materiel into Vietnam. This construction contract, amounting to $1.9 billion (equivalent to $14 billion in 2017 dollars), completed a construction program deemed to be the largest in history up to that time (Dunn 1991, p.v), (Carter 2004, p.58), and (Baldwin 1967). Over the ten-year life of the contract, RMK-BRJ trained 200,000 Vietnamese workers in construction and administrative trades (Tregaskis 1975, p.3). The use of a civilian contractor and construction force in an active theater of combat operations was authorized for the first time in U.S
