Activity during the night was sporadic but costly. AT 2130 several enemy mortar shells fell in the lines of BLT 2/23, wounding approximately thirty (30) men. AT 2210 enemy were reported moving in front of BLT 3/25; artillery fire was requested and the formation or gathering was dispersed. At 0515 a rocket fell into the CP of BLT 2/23 killing one (1) and wounding five (5) men. The BLT commander was badly shaken up and was relieved by the Executive Officer of RCT 23. This interruption necessitated a thirty (30) minute delay in meeting King-hour. The Division rear areas were quiet. Illumination only was fired during the night.

RCT 23, less BLT 1/23, making the main effort for the Division, attacked within its zone, advancing slowly during the morning. At 1230, following a five (5) minute preparation, the attack was continued and resulted in
substantial gains, particularly on the extreme left. BLT 1/23 continued in VAC LANFOR Reserve. Upon consolidation for the night at 1700, contact was established and maintained with the 3d Division.
