Description: The following is an edited version from the weekly Vietnam Communique column in the 19 Oct 1968 issue. Elements of the 1st Inf Div killed 79 enemy soldiers during seven days of moderate fighting. Elements of the 1/4th Cav made contact with an estimated NVA company in the thick rubber trees two miles SW of An Loc. Later, A/1/4th Cav moved into the area to search for the enemy force. Several hours of close contact resulted in 24 enemy killed. When the cavalrymen encountered the enemy force, Troop B moved in to reinforce. As the troop swept toward the contact site, it also received heavy fire from a different enemy force. The troopers called artillery on the enemy positions. After the barrage lifted, the unit swept the area, finding 19 enemy bodies.
