On May 17, 1966, two hundred NVA soldiers crossed the Ben Hai River, the demarcation line dividing North and South Vietnam and followed a narrow jungle trail through the lower half of the six-mile-wide demilitarized zone. Their mission was to reconnoiter Quang Tri Province prior to an invasion by the ten thousand men of NVA Division 324B. Morale was high.
General Westmoreland ordered General Walt's Marines to conduct the reconnaissance needed to evaluate the NVA infiltration. The Marines saw three hundred fifty NVA regulars, mortar pits, trench lines, and foxholes. General Westmoreland ordered Walt to ready seven marine infantry battalions (eight thousand men) to stop 324B. Reinforced by five ARVN infantry and airborne battalions (three thousand men), backed by artillery and aircraft, and covered by the long-range guns of the U.S. 7th Fleet.
Operation Hastings, the largest Marine operation up to that time, was underway!
Multiple props, rockets, bombs, demolitions, planes, tanks, engineers, medics, heavy weapons, and much more will keep the action intense all day long.
A sample of a few missions that will be run throughout the day:
Ammo Dump raid
