Area of Operation
The IV Corp tactical zone, which the 62d shared with both the 114th and 121st Aviation Companies (the latter being located at Soc Trang), covered nearly all of the Mekong Delta south and west of Saigon. The area encompassed the major food-producing region of South Vietnam and was considered the critical area wherein the struggle for freedom would be decided. Three major ARVN units in the IV Corp area were the ARVN 7th, 9th and 21st Infantry Divisions. The 62d also supported other ARVN and US military units in the Delta as well as innumerable political sub-divisions.
