Operation Macon

US Military Operation in Vietnam.

4 July - 27 October 1966
Operation MACON began when two VC companies ambushed one Marine company on a routine search and clear mission NE of An Hoa. An Hoa was to be the site of an industrial complex and was politically important to the GVN and hence the military. By the end of the day, III MAF developed the operation that normally consisted of a single battalion-size force but for a few days had five battalions. There were three phases to the operation which finally concluded on 27 October.
VC/NVA KIA's: 507
US KIA's: 24    US WIA's: 172
