  • Description

    In Eastern Cambodia after the American withdrawal, the South Vietnamese are now in evidence everywhere as their helicopters move troops about the country.

    This week near the village of Phang Chang, a battalion of South Vietnamese infantrymen came under fire from what they believed to be a battalion-sized Communist force. The South Vietnamese reported six dead and seven wounded, and claimed to have killed 15 communists.

    The battalion of South Vietnamese infantry were airlifted into the rice-growing area near Takeo, South of Phnom Penh, where Vietcong crops have been marauding in recent weeks.

    Coming under fire near Phang Chang, the South Vietnamese replied with mortars and moved in on the communist positions under cover of aerial support.

    Helicopters brought in fresh ammunition supplies and left with the bullet-riddled South Vietnamese casualties.
