    Background: Vietcong forces operating in South Vietnam have continued their attempts to cut Highway 20 and have been stopping up their activities around Saigon. Earlier this week the Vietcong made a determined effort to cut the highway near the village of Trang Bom but when Regional Force militia units countered the move they withdraw. As in the case of previous campaigns the vietcong appeared content to let the government troops know they were in the area.
