Description: The following is an edited version from the weekly Vietnam Communique column in the 28 Sep 1968 issue. A combined action fought by ARVN rangers and troopers of the 11th ACR north of the Long Binh-Bien Hoa complex resulted in 10 enemy killed. Fighting began when elements of the 36th Ranger Bn began to seal off the village of Thien Tan, seven miles NE of Bien Hoa, in preparation for a cordon-and-search operation. A number of VC tried to break through the cordon. Blackhorse cavalrymen moved to assist the rangers, while artillery and helicopter gunships supported the action. When the fight ended seven suspects had been detained and 10 VC killed.
