    Background: ARVN units today pulled back six kms from their forward positions along Highway one while fighting towards the communist lines sore 20 kms from Kuan Loc. This is the first major pullback on their road and is believed to have been caused by a right flanking movement by the communist forces. Already three towns on ??? read at least four kms from the front line are taking sporadic rocket fire, and those civilians remaining after the major exodus of last week are now pulling back to either Bien Hoa or Saigon. Government artillery and armour has also started pulling back to ready the defence of Bien Hoa itself.
