III MAF Report//September 1965


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.
