14 November, 1965
[Chu Pong Massif, Pleiku Province, South Vietnam]: [SIDE A] [HIS] [CSL]:

After the actions at Plei Me had subsided and 1st Brigade/7th Cavalry had spent a few weeks looking for the remnants of the NVA Regiments that had conducted the attacks, the 3rd Brigade/7th Cavalry had taken over the area.

Starting on November 9th, the 3rd Brigade battalions had started off their phase of the operation by performing search and destroy missions to the east of Plei Me. With the area clear, all eyes were focused west of Plei Me. Intelligence had surmised that three NVA Regiments were still in the area and were determined to find them.

With that, 3rd Brigade instructed 1st/7th Cavalry to perform and combat air assault into the Ia Drang valley just north of the Chu Pong Massif.

After a reconnaissance of the area, the commander of 1st/7th Cavalry chose Landing Zone X-Ray, with enough room for 8-10 helicopters at a time in which his battalion would have to land in multiple waves to conduct the search and destroy mission.

The Landing Zone was prepped with an artillery bombardment from LZ Falcon and aerial gunships from C/1st/9th Air Cavalry.

At 1050 on the morning of November 14th, 1965, B Company was the first to land in LZ X-Ray, starting their rendezvous with destiny.
