Soldiers from the 1st Cav Div experienced heavy but scattered contact during the week, as they reported killing 204 enemy.

An element of the 1/11th ACR under the operational control of the division, began receiving enemy fire before noon, four miles south of An Loc. The conflict which lasted over four and one half hours, was supported by gunship crews of the 1/9th Air Cav and 2nd Bde scouts. During this part of the contact, 31 enemy were killed. An estimated force of 10 enemy soldiers in bunkers were engaged by soldiers of the 5/7th Cav near the scene of the first encounter.
