Description: The 155th Aviation Company unit history states that during the month of June, they worked in an area from Dak To to Phan Thiet, flying 49 "out of local area" missions in support of the 22d and 23d ARVN Divisions and 5th Special Forces, moving 12,000 troops in direct support, hauling 92 tons of supplies and flying 1,915 hours. One of the highlights of the month was a night combat assault of 500 troops in an area north of Ban Me Thuot with minimum lighting. The successful accomplishment of this difficult task illustrated the 155th's ability to reinforce its immediate area at any time should Ban Me Thuot become a site of a major attack. Also during the early part of the month, the 155th continued to draw the attention of enemy mortar crews.
