February 23rd, 1967, units from the 173rd Airborne Brigade been dropped on their LZ the day prior with the mission to establish control of the Katum region. The NVA and VC forces in the area, caught wind of the operation and have fled from ther HQs to safe havens in Cambodia and Laos. That's not to say they haven't left materiel and manpower behind for the Americans to find.
The primary task for the American troops is to secure the region around the town of Katum, and become part of the "anvil" that North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces will be pushed into by the "hammer" elements forcing their way from the south. Civilians are still in the region and will need to be cleared out since the area has been declared a fire free zone. Can these villagers be trusted even after the GIs help them? Will they turn on them even as they take the American handouts? History tells us that the GIs need to stay vigilant and at high alert. Hopefully they establish authority over the area and complete their objectives.
With the mobile COSVN HQ moved to Cambodia already, a soldier fighting for NVA and VC will still have materiel to recover, hide and protect. The 273rd VC regiment has been tasked with harrassing the American forces operating east of Katum. A small village called Làng Hổ has been trying to stay neutral throughout the civil war but that is won't be surprising that there are Viet Cong agents operating out of it. It will be the NVA Cadre's task to bribe, threaten or trick the locals into supporting the cause.
The sights, the sounds and even the smells of the time come back to life for you the participant to experience. Once you leave your car and register in the Vietnam era admin tent, it is 1967 Vietnam for the weekend. PAVN forces should expect to stay out in the field the entire time. An accomadation area will be set aside in the case of inclimate weather. GIs will have era correct military tents to sleep in and should be prepared to patrol out in the field for the entire weekend.
Uniform restrictions are strongly enforced. There will a 10ft muster where participants will be inspected and "de-farbed" if they don't pass. Trust us, we want you to come and enjoy the event we've worked hard to build. That is why we are willing to work with you. But at the same time, there are people that want to get into the immersive aspect of the event and seeing a "dude" in a molle plate carrier would really kill it for them and others.
The event does not stop the entire weekend. There may be a ceasefire from 0200hrs-0500hrs for safety reasons. There will be a tight command structure for each side, where lone wolves will be frowned upon.
