Description: The following is an edited version from the weekly Vietnam Communique column in the 6 Jan 1968 issue.
An estimated VC battalion-size force attempted to overrun a company patrol of the Royal Thai Volunteer Regiment in Bien Hoa Province. The fight began when the enemy launched a three-sided attack. The Queen's Cobras returned fire from fortified positions, and at one point engaged the enemy in hand-to-hand combat. After four hours, enemy force broke contact until just before dawn when the fighting began again. Fifty-four VC were killed in the fierce fight.
