Description: The following is an edited version from the weekly Vietnam Communique column in the 18 Nov 1968 issue. The ARP of the ACT/11th ACR killed three VC and detained 11 others during a series of lightning quick raids east of Lai Khe Oct 28. Action began when an enemy soldier was captured beside a tunnel complex. The detainee was questioned and revealed the location of other enemy soldiers. The heliborne cavalrymen then took to their choppers and found four VC, one of whom told where more VC were hiding in some thick brush. Again the troops took to their helicopters and surprised 10 VC. As the helicopter landed fighting began. Three VC were killed and seven detained during the brief firefight.
