Abstract:

On 1 March 1968 the 125th Air Traffic Control Company and the 16th Signal Company Hyperbolic Navigation were reassigned to the 58th Combat Aviation Battalion at Long Binh. All other units assigned to this battalion remain as stated in the last report. Accordingly the 210th Combat Aviation Battalion retains control of all fixed wing aircraft organic to II Field Force. The 220th Assault Helicopter Company continues to provide gunship support for the Capital Military District. The armed helicopter platoon, however, is now based at Long Binh with the parent unit. Consequently a five minute reaction light fire team remains at Tan Son Nhut each evening while a thirty minute reaction light fire team deploys from Long Binh. At 0120 hours 28 February, 1968, the 9th Infantry Division basecamp came under mortar attack. This proved to be a minor attack consisting of only two rounds. The Long Thanh North complex did not receive any rounds, however an immediate red alert condition was initiated. Author
