The pass is a main mountain portal through which the North Viet- namese funnel men and supplies into Laos on to the Ho Chi Minn Trail for infiltration southward inlo South Vietnam. Headquarters said the convoy was moving along Route 15 in Vietnam's Panhandle to- ward the pass when waves of F105 Thunderchiefs and F4C Phantoms began a day-long as- sault. The U.S. command reported that 42 of the cargo-carrying vehicles were destroyed and that 20 niore were damaged. It was the largest single bag of enemy supply vehicles claimed by U.S. fliers in recent months.
