  Colonel Duc Dat 22nd ARVN Division Commander

The Battle of Kontum

Army of the Republic of South Vietnam (ARVN)
v.1.0 March 10, 2002

Unit history 1970 January, The 129th Assault Helicopter Company (AHC), began operations in 1970 still in support of the Capital Republic of Korea Infantry Division (CRID), LOCATED IN Military Region 2. Resupply missions and combat assaults accounted for most of our efforts, as in the first operation of the year, Dok Soori 7Q. The operation began the 6th of January in support of the 3rd Battalion of the "Tiger" Division's Cavalry Regiment at Dok So Ou. The assault which was small scale, covering the area surrounding Dok So Ou, ended three days later with eight enemy KIA's and six individual weapons captured.

Xuan Loc Battle,
The ARVN forces defending Saigon were disposed to cover the five main roads leading into Saigon. North of Saigon, the 5th ARVN Division defended against an enemy attack down Highway 13. Northeast of the capital, the 18th ARVN Division held Xuan Loc covering Highway 1 and the city and air base of Bien Hoa. Southeast of Saigon, two airborne brigades and a ranger group (all at about 50 percent strength) defended against an enemy thrust up Highway 15. Southwest of Saigon, the reactivated and refitted 22nd ARVN Division sat astride Highway 4, the main route from the Mekong Delta to Saigon. Finally, in the northwest, the 25th ARVN Division held Route 1 between Tay Ninh and Saigon.

Thus The Robinhoods, 173rd AHC, found themselves supporting the 5th ARVN Division, the 7th ARVN Division, the 25th ARVN Division and the 2cd ARVN Airborne Division.
