Chapter abstract The chapter bridges the activities carried out during a month of settling-in by the author into the position of sector planning and operations officer, and relates personal experiences in becoming familiar with life in a joint headquarters situation, including an introduction to some of the leading characters in the narrative: Brewer (senior province advisor), Am (province chief), Mooney (deputy province senior advisor), and Nhan (military deputy to Am). An equivalent of eight regiments/brigades made up the allied military in Quang Tri Province, sufficient to dominate the local Viet Cong and to keep the North Vietnamese on the borders. Iconic place names in the history of the U.S. military are introduced: Khe Sanh, Lang Vei, Huong Hoa, Ca Lu, Camp J. J.Carroll, and Cam Lo. The orchestration of a joint regimental-sized cordon and search operation and screening of suspected Viet Cong in the Cua Valley are described in detail. It was exciting to be with Team 19, as under the leadership of Colonel Harley F. Mooney, the team was proving to be a very effective U.S. Army advisory unit.
