    AT THE END OF THE SWEEP THROUGH THE AREA, TROOP CARRIERS ADVANCE WITH THE SPEAR-HEAD OF COMBAT SOLDIERS. THEY HAVE RECEIVED SUPPORT FROM AIRCRAFT BOMBING THE DENSE JUNGLE, WHICH COVERS MOST OF THE REGION. THE BOMBS SET ABLAZE THE JUNGLE IN THE AREA WHERE THE VIET CONG HEADQUARTERS WAS BELIEVED TO BE.
