Ambush

The Boi Loi Woods lay about 25 kilometers northwest of Cu Chi. Like the nearby Ho Bo Woods, the Boi Loi was a long-time sanctuary for VC (and increasingly NVA) forces. When the 25th Infantry Division arrived at Cu Chi in early 1966 a major objective was to reduce the value of these areas to the enemy - and that meant extensive search-and-destroy missions.

On 19 July 1966, Company A, 1st Bn, 27th Infantry was conducting such a mission in the Boi Loi Woods when it was ambushed by a main force VC battalion. Twenty-four Americans died in the bitter fight which followed. They were
