Scenes from Operation Delaware, a massive offensive by the 1st Air Cavalry Division against the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) in the A Shau Valley, April 1968, during the Vietnam war.

Film opens showing scattered wreckage of a UH-1H helicoptor damaged by enemy fire or by collision with obstacles during landing. As troops work to clear wreckage, another UH-1 lands precariously in the midst of debris. Troops dismount. Other soldiers work around the crash site. Nearby, a contingent of troops is busy carving out a proper landing zone, using small tools and a number of chain saws. Two of them pass close by the camera, carrying a huge tree trunk. Troops employ chain saws close to one another as they work on the tangled underbrush and trees. In the background, one soldier chops smaller brush with a machete. (Note: It has been reported that these scenes depict elements of B Company, 227th Assault Helicopter battalion, at LZ Pepper, and the UH-1H seen landing might be from the 1st/9th "Head Hunters.")
