[Tam Han Valley, Quang Ngai Province, South Vietnam]: [SIDE A] [HIS] [CSL]:

The northeast monsoon with up to 21 inches of rain affected every large unit operation conducted in November, from the Demilitarized Zone in the north to the approaches of the enemy's Do Xa secret base, 180 miles to the south.

All of the operations in l Corps were beset by heavy and continuing rains, and each characterized by light and infrequent contact with an enemy who showed little disposition to fight.

The South Koreans, operating in the southern area of Quang Ngai Province, were also conducting search and destroy operations in their sector.

Operation DRAGON EYE commenced on November 9th, when the 2nd Republic of Korea Marine Brigade ("Blue Dragons") initiated a search and destroy operation centered sixteen kilometres northwest of Quang Ngai City.

The first couple weeks of the operation were fraught with the same infrequent contact that the U.S. Marines were facing.

After 9th/3rd/2nd ROK Marine Battalion successfully defeated an ambush on November 20th, a multi-national operation was conducted in the Tam Han Valley to track down and destroy the remaining elements of the 2nd VC Regiment.

The U.S. 1st/7th Marines were ferried to landing zones to the west of the valley while an ARVN task force from 5th Regiment secured the southern banks of Song Tra Khuc.

While engaging the pursing 3rd/2nd ROK Marines, the remnants of the 2nd VC Regiment was attacked from the rear by the U.S. 1st/7th Marines.

As the perimeter was being squeezed tighter and tighter, the Viet Cong performed a series of delaying actions to allow the remainder of the troops to escape the pending closure of the Free World vice.
