Description
First United States Combat-Troop Reduction in Vietnam - The first US combat-troop reduction in South Vietnam, 25,000 men, announced by Presidents Thieu and Nixon at their Midway Island conference in June, began with the vanguard departures of 800 US army infantrymen and 1,300 marines. The 25,000 troop redeployment will be completed by the end of August, and their mission in the republic absorbed by South Vietnamese forces.

On July 8 the soldiers departed from Saigon Airport after ceremonies attended by President Nguyen Van Thieu, Vice-President Nguyen Cao Ky, American Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker, ministry and military staff chiefs. Before boarding a fleet of 'Starlifter' jet transports for the United States, the homebound infantrymen were cheered by crowds of grateful Vietnamese citizens, whose representatives presented the soldiers with flower lais and souvenir gifts. At Da Nang on July 14, the marines' ceremonies were presided over by General Hoang Xuan Lam, Commander of South Vietnam's Armed Forces.

Description
Dr. Anh, a female plastic surgeon with the Cho Bay Hospital, performed the surgery. She also handled the administrative arrangements for the boy and his aunt. Upon the successful completion of the surgery, both parties were returned to their homes in Tan An. The warm reception accorded the S5 at the home of Vo Van Be attests to the overwhelming success of this project. This is just one of many such activities undertaken by the 9th Infantry Division.

Description
This is another type of boat, which YRBM-16 didn't work with, but we saw a lot of. In the Mekong Delta, we had what was called the Mobile Riverine Force, which was Navy gunboats and Army soldiers from the 9th Infantry Division, and most of their boats looked more or less like this one. To point out some specifics, this one and the one to your left of it were field medevac triage stations. You can see on their little helicopter pad, there's a white circle with a red cross, and down below that was an improvised operating room where we could get lines into the guy, get his fluids up, splint any breaking bones that he had and help him get ready for another chopper to take him to a real hospital. And on top, there's a 20mm gun turret. Looks like the old Civil War USS Monitor, and that 20mm gun was a good brush buster. It was a fine asset for these guys. It has thin, steel bars going from side to side and it continues on to your right where those ropes are hanging and inside those wires, you can see some tan colored cardboard boxes. What this was, the stuff you see go inside the side of steel reinforcing bar like a highway crew puts in the concrete and behind it, those are boxes of the C-ration lima beans and canned apricots which nobody wanted and nobody ate. The rebar would cause a rocket propel grenade to detonate without piercing the hole of the boat itself and if the rocket hit on the reinforcing bar and then hit the case of C-ration lima beans, it wasn't going to hurt anybody inside, in-between the bar and the lima beans. It was a pretty good backstop. Also over the stern of the boat, you can see a funny looking chain with some metal pieces. That was for cutting the wires to command detonated bottom-morred mines. It wasn't particularly effective, but it made everybody feel a lot more secure. Each of these boats flew the state flag of the senior enlisted men as well as the United States flag.
