Congratulatory Messages 15 May 1968
With great pride and my own congratulations to all participating units, I pass on to the troopers of the 2nd Brigade these additional congratulatory messages on our operations at Phouc Yen, 28 April to 3 May 1968.
1. It gives me extreme pleasure to forward this message, and to add my heartiest congratulations to those of President Nguyen Van Thieu.
2. The victory at Phouc Yen has now brought congratulations from the very highest levels of the Republic of Vietnam government. This action is recognized as a classic tactical example of swift concentration of force, complete encirclement, and relentless destruction of the enemy. It was indeed well done.
3. Please insure that this message is brought to the attention of all the troops who earned this high praise.
