battle of Dak To

From date 670809 to 670821


173 ABN was a US Army unit
4/503 ABN was a US Army unit
Primary service involved, US Army
Operation GREELEY
Kontum Province, II Corps, South Vietnam
Location, Dak Pek
Description: In support of GREELEY, the 173d Abn moved a second battalion, the 4/503d Abn, to Dak Pek to reaction to the increased NVA activity around the SF camp since late July. These two battalions conducted search and destroy operations to the south and west of Dak Pek until the 21st when they were lifted back to Dak To. This reinforcement and the heavy ARVN reaction to the NVA around Dak Seang may have helped the NVA move back across the border and saved Dak Pek.

The source for this information was DAK TO by Murphy P:120
