1. SITUATION:

Last weekend we took the PAVN's base camp in the valley. This action successfully thwarted Colonel Nguyen's plan to annihilate us, and move on to assist in the battle for Saigon. The 324th PAVN Infantry is making a hasty retreat, north, along Highway 19, in an attempt to get across the Cambodian Border to safety. Bravo, Charlie, and Delta Company have been flown in along the border to act as a blocking force. Mean while, Alpha Company's job is to push north along Highway 19, and attempt to over run the PAVN's rear guard and supply train. Once and if this can be accomplished, Alpha Company will then join in on the attack, and assault the main body of the PAVN force, which is currently engaged up north with Bravo Company.

  2. Do not engage anyone who has surrendered, or is unarmed or wounded. 
  3. Any requests for fire support or close air support within 600 Meters of a civilian center must first get authorization from commanding officer.
