Route 92 shown to the was the designation given to the road that exited the Ban Raving Pass which connected southern North Vietnam to Laos. It was a major aertery of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The North Vietnamanese designated the trail Route 1036. Route 92 went as far south as the region of Cambodia west of Ban Me Thout in South Vietnam's Central Highlands. Route 92 also connected with eastern routes into South Vietnam opposite Ben Het, Kontum, Pleiku, the Plei Trap Valley, and the Ia Drang Valley.

It formed the main north-south route of the Ho Chi Minh Trail in what the 7th Air Force called the "Eastern Corridor" of the Ho Chi Minh Trail (HCMT) network. Bombed on an ongoing basis and subjected to ambushes by the US Special Forces, this road was never closed for any appreciable length of time.

Damage to the road was usually repaired within 8 hours. Measures - 29 x 22.5 inches (74 x 59 cms). Operation Lam Son 719 or 9th Route - Southern Laos Campaign (Vietnamese: Chi? Ch Lam Son 719 or Chi?

Ng 9 - Nam Lào) was a limited-objective offensive campaign conducted in the southeastern portion of the Kingdom of Laos. The campaign was carried out by the armed forces of the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam) between 8 February and 25 March 1971, during the Vietnam War.

The United States provided logistical, aerial, and artillery support to the operation, technically, its ground forces were prohibited by law from entering Laotian territory. The objective of the campaign was the disruption of a possible future offensive by the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN), whose logistical system within Laos was known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail (the Truong Son Road to North Vietnam).

By launching such a spoiling attack against PAVN's long-established logistical system, the American and South Vietnamese high commands hoped to resolve several pressing issues. A quick victory in Laos would bolster the morale and confidence of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), which was already high in the wake of the successful Cambodian Campaign of 1970.

It would also serve as proof positive that South Vietnamese forces could defend their nation in the face of the continuing withdrawal of U. Ground combat forces from the theater. The operation would be, therefore, a test of that policy and ARVN's capability to operate effectively by itself. Because of the South Vietnamese need for security which precluded thorough planning, an inability by the political and military leaders of the U. And South Vietnam to face military realities, and poor execution, Operation Lam Son 719 collapsed when faced by the determined resistance of a skillful foe.

The campaign was a disaster for the ARVN, demonstrating deficiencies in ARVN military leaders and that the best units of the ARVN could be defeated by PAVN and destroying the confidence that had been built up over the previous three years.
