On 7 September at 1520 hours (3:20 pm), C Company, 3rd Battalion, while
conducting Eagle Flight Operations, was inserted into a "Hot" landing zone at grid coordinates XT 560 266.
The initial platoon of C Company was immediately reinforced with the remainder of C Company, B & D Companies,
and the Reconnaissance Platoon as the contact rapidly increased and the enemy force was estimated as a battalion
with numerous mortars, automatic and crew-served weapons and Rocket Propelled Grenades.
