Discounting covert ops (which were everywhere) US conventional invasion forces from 01 May thru June 1970 covered the Cambodian sectors east of the Mekong River, an area known on the maps as the "Parrots Beak" , and up through the town of Mimot. Officially US forces were to penetrate 21 miles and campaign only 60 days. Parrots Beak (or Peak) is bordered by the RVN city (and US basecamp) of Tay Ninh, and the lower half is due west of Saigon.
