The Viet Cong detonated a mine against the side of the USS COCONINO COUNTY, offloading cargo at the Cua Viet Ramp. Explosives caused moderate damage to the LST and resulted in one US wounded.

June 30, 1967

After the 173d Airborne Brigade's sharp battle with the NVA on the 22nd, MACV reinforced the 4th Infantry Division to continue GREELEY and the Battle of Dak To. The rest of the 173d Airborne Brigade moved to Kontum along with the 3d Brigade, 11st Cavalry Division. The 4th Infantry established a forward TOC at Dak To to coordinate these units. Finally, the 5th and 8th ARVN Airborne Battalions plus a battalion from the 42d ARVN Regiment moved into the area. The 299th Engineer Battalion struggled through torrential rains to replace the blown bridges along QL 14 between Kontum and Dak To. At times Dak To had to subsist on aerial delivery for days on end. Aircraft crashed and burned with alarming regularity.

"Dispatches" by Micheal Herr

"Dak To itself had only been a command point for a combat without focus that tore a thirty-mile arc over the hills running northeast to southwest of thesmall base and airfield there from early November through Thanksgiving 1967, fighting that grew in size and fame while it grew more vicious and out of control." In October the small Dak To Special Forces compound had taken some mortar and rocket fire, patraols went out, patrols collided, companies splintered the action and spread it across the hills in a sequence of small isolated firefights that afterward were described as strategy; battalions weres sucked into it, then divisions, then reinforced divisions. Anyway, we knew for sure that we had a reinforced division in it, the 4th plus, nad we saidthey had one it it too, although alot of people believed that a couple of light flexible regiments could have done what the NVA did up and down those hills for three weeks, leaving us to claim we'd driven him up 1338, up 943, up 875 and 876, while th opposing claims remained mostly unspoken and probably unnecessary. And instead of relly ending, the battle vanished. The North Vietnamese collected up their gear and most of their dead and "disappeared" during the night, leaving a few bodies behind for our troops to kick and count."

July 4-6, 1967

While conducting CORONADO I, the Mobile Riverine Force attacked an enemy base area about 4 miles northwest of Go Cong. A Popular Force battalion established a blocking positon to the west and helicopter gunship watched areas that could not be covered by ground unit. A riverine FSB was established on the Vam Co river. The MRF moved down the Vam Co to the Rach Go Cong River and inserted forces from the 3/47 and the 4/47 Inf onto 7 beaches. One company size CA was made onto a LZ COBRA. By 1800 the sweep had produced only minor skirmishes where 3 VC were KIA, 91 detained (later it was learned these were new VC recuits without weapons), and 2 weapons. The night ambushes encounted small VC units in several locations. On 5 July, US troops discovered cleverly disguished bunkers and spider holes in which the VC had hide the previous day. The operation ended on the 6th. Naval craft had stopped over 700 native watercraft. The MRF used helicopters to resupply directly from their support LSTs to the units. Ten Hueys were needed to resupply the two battalions. They also added helicopter landing pads 16 feet square on the first of several ATCs. OH-23s made the first landings on 4 July and then Hueys on the 5th. There were no US casualties but the VC suffered 66 KIAs and over 91 POWs

July 6, 1967

Radio Hanoi announced the death of four-star NVA general Nguyen Chi Thanh, reputed to be in charge of military operations in the RVN.

Quote:
Nguyen Chi Thanh (1914 - 1967) was from 1965 until his death the commanding general of North Vietnamese operations in South Vietnam. He presented plans for the Tet offensive to the North Vietnamese Politburo, but did not survive to see them put into action.

(General Thanh is believed to have been killed during a B-52 raid)
