With your help, we hope to provide some history about the Fire Support Bases that B, 1/7 Cav defended. Generally, these would be forward FSB's from which the Battalion opereated with artillery or at least mortars in support. No civilians associated. We will accept hostile action accounts that relate our sister companies as well. If you have partial data, we will hope that someone else can fill in later. Let's give it a shot. Hard calls are those that were important for Bn. Ops, but where Bravo might not have "defended", such as LZ Ranch in Cambodia, but for continuity, should be included.
