  • Description

    Elements of the U. S. 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) conducted a recent sweep operation against the Viet Cong in the Ia Drang Valley area on a search and destroy mission.

    The "Skytroopers" air-assaulted into the rugged foothills surrounding the Ia Drang River area west of Plei Me. Artillery and air support pounded the area prior to the infantry assault.

    Shortly after arriving in the operations area, the U. S. infantrymen made contact with the Viet Cong. During the combat operation, U. S. helicopters delivered supplies and evacuated the wounded.
