Northern Province of Quang Nam
The capital of this province, Da Nang, is home to the U.S. largest Air base as of 1966. This northern rather industrialized province is vital to the U.S. effort to maintain the integrity of the Republic of South Vietnam.
The Thoung Duc Valley on the eastern side of the province has been occupied by North Vietnamese Forces. Most of the ARVN Forces have been pushed back to the coast. The 1st Battalion 7th Cavalry will be tasked with retaking this key valley, one city at a time, to prevent the enemy from launching an assault on Da Nang.
