Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Operation Sam Houston

US Military Operation in Vietnam.

1 January - 5 April 1967

4th and 3rd Brigade, 25th Infantry Divisions involved in border surveillance.This operation took place in Pleiku and Kontum Provinces. This was a follow-up operation to Paul Revere IV.

It in turn would be followed by FRANCIS MARION. Initially the 4th had only its 2nd Brigade and 3rd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, but during February the 1st Brigade, 4th Infantry Division joined from Tuy Hoa to add extra support for the operation.

This operation consisted of a series of aggressive search and destroy missions especially in southwestern Kontum Province. In mid-February the 4th Infantry Division had no less than eleven major engagements with the NVA. By March the NVA had had enough and began retreating back into Cambodia.

VC/NVA KIA's: 733
US KIA's: 169
