Abstract:

During the reporting period, PCV efforts were confined, for the most part, to small combat operations, with one major corps operation being initiated. Concurrently, there was a lack of significant enemy initiated action. The 1st and 101st ACDs have continually reported the capture of large enemy caches located outside the established base area boundaries, indicating that the base area boundaries are larger than currently depicted. The effectiveness of small unit combat actions becomes apparent. The enemy has been sought out and destroyed on a small, but effective scale. The reporting period can best be described as day and night search and clear operations conducted against the enemy by US and ARVN company and smaller sized units denying the enemy the opportunity to regroup for a coordinated attack.
