A sign at the 2nd Squardon (one of three squadrons) of the 11th ACR or in military short hand 2/11

The 11th was one of the participants in Operation Cedar Falls in early 1967. The plan was to shut down the communist base in Binh Duong province, which is better known as the Iron Triangle. But the Vietcong tactics were to withdraw rather then to confront the enemy and the area was taken and destroyed without the anticipated resistance.

The US actually wanted to engage the Vietcong in large-scale battles to be able to take advantage of their superior firepower.
