08 cavalry to the res­cue

History of War - - KHE SANH -

The US First Cavalry Divi­sion be­gins Op­er­a­tion Pe­ga­sus on 1 April with the goal of re-open­ing Route 9 to Khe Sanh Com­bat Base. The NVA lacks suf­fi­cient anti-air­craft guns to im­pede the Air Cavalry’s of­fen­sive op­er­a­tions. A week later the Fifth Bat­tal­ion, Sev­enth Cavalry links up with the First Bat­tal­ion, 26th Ma­rine Reg­i­ment, end­ing the siege.
