Making Friends in Vietnam-- ; U.S. Marine Corps Chaplain Lt. Peter Maclean intrigues a Vietnamese family by demonstrating a toy horn for the children. He was with a Marine patrol operating near the village of Da Nang in South Vietnam. Distribution of the toys to Vietnamese children are part of the Marines' pacification program and an effort to show friendship for the villagers.
