Abstract:
The overall situation in IV Corps continues basically unchanged, but there are indications that the Government of Vietnam (GVN) in the delta, under the leadership of General Thang, is making a concerted effort to regain the initiative. Today the GVN and other friendly forces are conducting 60 offensive operations against the Viet Cong (VC), 41 of which are being run out of the districts. This vigorous military action on the part of the GVN should, if it is continued, help to enhance the GVN presence in the countryside while offsetting VC propaganda claims concerning their Tet Offensive victories.
