2 - VIETNAM, 1969-1970. 1st Tour of duty.

On my "first" tour of duty to Vietnam I was assigned to Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion 92nd Field Artillery, in the Central Highlands on a Firebase called, DAK TO.

http://bravecannons.org/History/FireBase6.html

1969-1970. Bravo Battery occupied FB6 from January 1969 to December 1970. The 4 th ID pulled out of Dak To in January 1969 so security for FB6 was then shifted to a CIDG from Ben Het. In turn, two of our howitzer sections displaced to Ben Het in a counter-battery role. Bravo battery's missions were in support of ARVN and local indigenous forces advised by US Special Forces. Enemy activity increased these two years. The 66 th and 28 th NVA Regiments supported by PT 76 Tanks and 130mm artillery were detected moving towards Dak To from Base Area 609 in early 1969. Ben Het was struck in early March. The assault with tanks was the first of its kind in the war. Firebase 6 provided a wall of steel around Ben Het to help repel the attack. Bravo Battery's fires were so effective that the NVA launched an attack against FB6 June 11, 1969. Sappers penetrated the perimeter but were ultimately, driven back with heavy losses thanks to the courageous CIDG defenders. This occurred during the Siege of Dak To/Ben Het.
