In early March the 3rd Brigade, 4th Infantry Division commanded by Col. Eugene Forrester was deployed to improve security in the coastal lowlands.[1]:473

On 9 March, the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) 22nd Regiment, 3rd Division attacked the 1/50th Infantry's base camp, Landing Zone Litts (14°11′49″N 109°03′40″E / 14.197°N 109.061°E), 2km north of Phù Mỹ District.[2][1] The attackers failed to penetrate the perimeter and suffered 36 killed.[1]

On 15 March during a patrol north of Phù Mỹ the 1/50th Infantry engaged a force from the 22nd Regiment killing a further 34 PAVN.[1]

Aftermath

The operation concluded on 30 March when the 3rd Brigade moved to the Central Highlands to rejoin the rest of the 4th Division. The 4th Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment began Operation Cochise continuing the mission of Operation Patrick.[1]:474
