Attack on FSB II (Prek Klok) – March 10, 1967

Operation Junction City was a joint U.S. and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) military action to locate the elusive “headquarters” of the Communist uprising in South Vietnam, the Central Office of South Vietnam (COSVN). The 82-day military operation began February 22, 1967, and comprised most of the 1st Infantry Division and the 25th Infantry Division including the 196th Light Infantry Brigade, the airborne troops of the 173rd Airborne Brigade, and large armored elements of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment (11th ACR). On March 10, 1967, the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Infantry (Mechanized), 1st Infantry Division, was located at Fire Support Base II near Prek Klok along Route TL-4 in Tay Ninh Province, RVN. The base was constructed to launch limited search and destroy and route security missions plus blocking maneuvers on enemy escape routes in area. At 10:03 PM, FSB II was subjected to a thirty-minute mortar attack of 200 rounds of 120mm, 82mm, and 60mm mortars. This was followed immediately by a ground attack by two battalions of the 272nd Viet Cong (VC) Regiment. The 2/2 Infantrymen fought back with unit weapons and received supporting arms from coordinated artillery and airstrikes placed around the perimeter of the base. The battle continued until 5:00 AM when the VC broke contact. Policing of the battle area revealed 196 VC killed (by body count). U.S. losses were three dead and thirty-eight wounded. The lost personnel included PFC Joel A. Brown (A Co, 2/2 Inf), SP4 Edward S. Hall (C Co, 2/2 Inf), and SFC William E. Rager (168th Eng Bn).
