COMMAND CHRONOLOGY//1-30 1965//SIGNIFICANT EVENTS--
C. Enemy Activity. The Viet Con reverted from the tactic of amassing large forces to small
unit actions during September. This change is attributed largely to the results of Operation
STARLITE; the surprise search and destroy operation which proved that large concentrations
of VC forces could be discovered and defeated by US/RVN forces. In reverting to small unit
activity, the VC concentrated on ingenious land mines and booby traps in an effort to limit
III MAF offensive action.
