In the Dong Truoi Mountains a company of the 1/327th Abn killed two enemy troops, and after the contact another company of the same battalion killed one more enemy soldier while searching a small hut complex in the same area. Three companies of the 2/505th Abn and 2/502nd Abn rescued the pilot and co-pilot of a LOH which crashed in the Dong Truoi Mountains. The two wounded men had managed to evade the encircling enemy before being evacuated.
