NVA Retains Control of Binh Dinh Despite South Vietnamese Counter-Offensive

South Vietnamese troops begin a major counter-offensive against NVA in Binh Dinh Province. With U.S. air support, the South Vietnamese Army begins a drive to recapture Binh Dinh province and its cities. The battles last until September 15, by which time Quong Tri has been reduced to rubble. Nevertheless, the NVA retains control of the northern part of the province.
