  • Description

    South Vietnamese troops were gathering at Chon Thanh on Saturday (8 April) in an attempt to reopen Highway 13 leading to the besieged province of Binh Long.

    Chon Thanh is about 85 kms northwest of Saigon, and South Vietnamese Government officials feared that if the Communist offensive spread any further down Highway 13 at this point, Saigon itself could be directly threatened.

    Troops and equipment are still being moved up along the vital road for an all-out breakthrough on the communist road blocks. If that is successful, reinforcements will be able to get through to an Loc, further to the north.
