    From MacMaster:

    1/16th – Inserted into a hot LZ at about 1030 hrs. The first lift was under heavy automatic and small arms fire which downed 2 slicks. The enemy was dug in along a heavily wooded and bunkered area boarding a canal. Six more companies were inserted to complete a seal. Air strikes and artillery were called in. The 7th ARVN Division set up in blocking positions south of the canal. By evening, the entire 6/31st was on the ground
