A Note from The Virtual Wall

Tay Ninh Province lay on the northern side of the "Parrot's Beak" area of Cambodia which protruded into South Vietnam, forming an unmolested sanctuary for VC and NVA troops and supply areas. The area around the provincial capital, Tay Ninh City, was disputed ground throughout the war and became even more so as the infiltration of North Vietnamese Army units increased during 1968.

On 27 November 1968 the 4th Battalion, 9th Infantry, was engaged in a bitter fight about 3 kilometers southeast of Tay Ninh City. At day's end, 26 Americans were dead - six from a supporting helicopter unit, two from a 22nd Infantry unit, and 18 from 4/9 Infantry:
