This is where we lost 81 men killed and over 300 wounded in the three days of battle fought. The Battle of Dai Do was a fierce and bloody struggle between an understrength Marine battalion landing team, 2nd. Battalion, 4th.Marines (BLT 2/4), and major elements of the 320th North Vietnamese Army (NVA) Division during three hot, humid spring days in 1968 (30 April - 3 May) On the north bank of the Bo Dieu River and drove it back toward the Demilitarized Zone ...The Marines launched a successful spoiling attack that prevented the much larger NVA unit from launching a ground assault on the Marine combat/combat service support base at Dong Ha, headquarters of the 3rd Marine Division.
