On 28 August 1968, B Co, C Co, and D Co saturated the North side of Hill 549. Of significance was the discovery of another hospital complex, numerous graves, and large quantities of weapons and munitions. Of primary interest, however, was the large quantity of documents, including maps and operations orders of past and present attacks on friendly forces and installations in the Hue-Phu Bai area.
