Operation ATLAS WEDGE
Description: On D+4 of operation ATLAS WEDGE, the 1st Sqdn took over the attack. By now they only had three LOHs flyable so Hueys were used for scouting. These fresh teams began destroying the remaining bunkers from the previous day's battle. For the next five days the 11th ACR continued to thrash through the Michelin plantation but the battle was over.
