Original built by the French in 1908, Lao Bao was a prison located in the Quang Tri Province of South Vietnam during the Vietnam War. This prison was also known as the Lao Bao Special Zone Detention Camp or simply as the Lao Bao Prison. It was a facility used by the South Vietnamese government to detain and interrogate individuals suspected of supporting or sympathizing with the communist forces, particularly the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army. The prison was notorious for its harsh conditions and the mistreatment of detainees.

Reports of torture, overcrowding, and inadequate medical care were not uncommon, and the conditions at Lao Bao were a source of concern and criticism, both domestically and internationally. Khe Sanh is a district in Quang Tri Province, located in the northern part of South Vietnam, near the border with North Vietnam. Marine Corps established a combat base there in 1962, known as Khe Sanh Combat Base. It was strategically located near the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that separated North and South Vietnam. By the end of 1967, the U. Military had detected an increase in North Vietnamese Army (NVA) activity in the Khe Sanh area. Intelligence suggested that the NVA was planning a major offensive, and they began to fortify their positions around Khe Sanh. The Battle of Khe Sanh officially began on January 21, 1968, when the NVA initiated a siege of the combat base. For 77 days, the base was subjected to intense artillery and mortar fire, making it difficult for U. Forces to receive supplies and reinforcements.

The Marines and other U. Forces at Khe Sanh were effectively cut off from the rest of South Vietnam. Launched Operation Niagara to provide air support and break the siege. Air Force aircraft conducted massive bombing campaigns in the surrounding area, which led to heavy casualties among the NVA forces. To relieve the pressure on Khe Sanh, U.

Marines conducted a series of operations in the surrounding area, such as Operation Pegasus and Operation Scotland. These operations aimed to reopen Route 9, the main supply line to Khe Sanh. By late March 1968, the NVA had suffered significant losses and decided to withdraw from the area. On April 8, 1968, the siege of Khe Sanh was officially lifted, and the U.

Forces regained control of the combat base.
