Description: The 155th Aviation Company unit history states they provided general support for Operation MASHER/WHITE WING with the 52d Aviation Battalion based out of Phu Cat. On 28 Jan and 3 Feb the company performed battalion combat assault. On 4 Feb, Premier Nguyen Cao Ky and his party were transported with eight Hueys and four armed escorts on an aerial inspection. On 5 Feb, they provided standby reinforcements for the 1st Cav but poor weather forced its cancellation. During the remainder of the operation, the company was engaged in general misions involving resupply and medical evacuation flights. Major problems during the period proved to be the lack of a supply of potable water and fuel for the range burners. Rations and water were received from a unit of the 1st Cav DIVARTY during this time.
