Abstract:

The battalion continued combat operations in the II Corps Tactical Zone for eighty-nine days during the reporting period. Artillery was employed in support of 4th Infantry Division, ARVN, RFPF and Special Forces Camps. The elements of this battalion remained in their strategically located areas and continued to provide artillery coverage west of Pleiku and for areas around Kontum and Dak To. There were no displacements of organic firing batteries. Numerous raids were conducted to extend the artillery coverage in support of maneuver elements and to fire at significant targets beyond the normal range coverage provided from the permanent fire bases. Artillery raids during this period were more frequent and normally for longer durations because of operations along the Cambodian border west of Kontum.
