Abstract:

During the reporting period, a major portion of the divisions assets were placed in support of USGVN combined operations and training to upgrade the effectiveness of GVN forces to seek out and destroy VCNVA forces to interdict enemy base areas and infiltration routes to detect, capture, or destroy members of the local Viet Cong infrastructure and their sympathizers to disrupt routes of supply between mountain base camps and rice producing lowlands and population centers and to support the Thua Thien Province Accelerated Pacification Program. During the latter part of the reporting period, division forces were repositioned in preparation for quick reaction to enemy attempts to harass the populated lowland areas during the Tet holiday period.
