Abstract:

This Operational Report - Lessons Learned covers the period 1 Aug - 31 Oct 1967 during which the Blackhorse Regiment completed its first year in the Republic of South Vietnam. During this quarter the regiment continued to conduct operations designed to locate and destroy Viet Cong forces and installations within the Blackhorse Tactical Area of Interest TAOI and Tactical Area of Responsibility TAOR. Road clearing operations were continued on all major routes within the TAOI. The road clearing opened lines of communication, allowed the Vietnamese freer use of the roads of Long Khanh Province, and decreased the opportunity for Viet Cong Forces to halt traffic for tax collection. In addition, these clearing operations interdicted a major Viet Cong supply route from the May Tao Secret Zone to the Hat Dich Secret Zone.
