After Action Reports

Contains a summary of Operation Holly and the after action report of the 1st Ranger Group (ARVN) for Lam Son 719. Operation Holly was the code name for the Bob Hope Christmas Tour of 1970. Mr. Hope visited the 101st Airborne during this tour at Camp Eagle. Many 101st Airborne and 3rd Brigade units supported Lam Son 719 around Highway 9 near Khe Sahn, and many 101 pilots flew the ARVN soldiers into the battle. The Lam Son 719 report gives a good overview of the difficulties the ARVN had during this battle in Laos.
