Black Virgin Mountain

At the beginning of November 1966, operations near the "Black Virgin" Mountain were uncovering very large NVA/VC supply caches. Because the NVA/VC could not afford to lose the supplies, they were forced to fight - and fight they did, beginning with heavy action near Dau Tieng starting on 03 Nov 1966, when 13 US soldiers died in the fighting. It continued on 04 November, with 11 US infantry companies in the field, supported by air and artillery as well as ARVN infantry. By day's end, the NVA/VC commanders realized they could not protect their supply caches and began a withdrawal toward the Cambodian border. Seventeen more US soldiers died in the fighting on 04 Nov 1966:
