CPT Ed Boyt carried this map during the Battle of the Ia Drang. The highlighted area on the map is where the battle was fought. Ed’s circle labeled “1st night” is LZ Victor, with the route overland taken by the 2/5 Cav. Circled is LZ X-Ray itself labeled “2d & 3d Night”, and finally, he marked the overland route taken by 2/5 Cav to LZ Columbus, labeled “4th night.”. The arc drawn in the upper right quadrant of LZ X-Ray represents C Company’s portion of the perimeter. The very small circle due west of X-Ray is the “Lost Platoon” of A 1/7 that C 2/5 Cav helped rescue. The A-B-D etc, penciled on the map were battalion assigned reference points for quick transmittal of unit locations.
