Abstract:

The 25th Infantry Division Artillery was actively engaged in combat operations in support of Operation Toan Tang Complete Victory II which continued from the previous quarter. The major activity continued to occur in the Tay Ninh-Dau Tieng area. Because the enemy chose to avoid major contact, artillery operations consisted primarily of landing zone preparations for maneuver element air assault search operations and the attack of intelligence and acquired targets. Only on three occassions did the enemy choose to engage in significant combat, two attacks against convoys and one against a patrol base, and each time Div Arty provided the fire superiority to defeat him. Reinforcement training of replacements, on-the-job, and proficiency training continued as noted in the 31 October 1968 report.
