7th Cav – Battle of Hue

In the early morning of January 31st, 1968, a division of Vietcong soldiers launched a massive attack on the city of Hue. Two U.S. Army battalions ( 7th and 12th Calvary Regiments) and three understrength U.S. Marine Corps (3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, and 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines) battalions defeated the invading force over the ensuing two months of battle.
