    The publications in this collection contain information on the 1st Infantry Division, U.S. Army, and its subordinate units in South Vietnam during 1968.

    Issues of The American Traveler newspaper for August-November 1968 feature articles concerning the personnel, campaigns, and activities of the 1st Infantry Division. Included are photographs and articles pertaining to the members of the division in action in Vietnam. Of particular interest is a section within the September 1968 issue of the magazine Danger Forward which deals with the Communist "TET" Offensive of 1968 and the conduct of operations during its course.

    The Viet Cong propaganda leaflets were found at Fire Support Base Washington, ten miles from the Cambodian Border, where the 25th Infantry Division was located. There is also a photograph of the aftermath of a battle in the same area.
