On March 14, 1968, the battalion(-) conducted RIF operations in the area of XT 6321 and 6421. At 1229 hours, in the northwest area of the Filhol at XT 642219, Company A, moving with men on the ground in front of the tracks, received sniper fire. One Bobcat was shot in the chest and died before a dust-off could get him out. The men were ordered to take cover as artillery was called in. The artillery rounds mistakenly landed on top of the men of Company A, killing two Bobcats and wounding twenty-three.
Also on the 14th, a Bobcat from the Recon Platoon died from the wounds he had received the day before.
Company C remained OPCON to the 2/34th Armor and conducted operations in the lower Boi Loi Woods in the area of XT 5726.
