Brothers In Combat

 Throughout history, the United States fighting man has served side by side with soldiers of many countries.

  The conflict in the Republic of Vietnam finds yet another ally at our side....The Vietnamese soldier.

Since the start of the war, our men have conducted all major operations with the Vietnamese. Today. nearly all major operations are joint operations. So successful have these combined forces been that major American field commanders have praised their Vietnamese counterparts as combat equals.

  The 1st Division of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam has compiled an especially impressive record, combining with this Division to kill more than 18,000 enemy since February, 1968. The pacification programs of the two Divisions have resulted in more than 30 secure hamlets.

  They have pacified Thua Thien province to the extent the Hue Phu Bai railroad line has become operative after months of labor, providing a large boost to the economy of the area.

  Maj. Gen. Ngo Quang Troung, commander of the 1st ARVN Division has worked hand-in-hand with Maj. Gen. Melvin Zais in pursuit of the enemy and pacification of Tua Thien province.

   With this cooperation among the two Divisions and its leaders, Thua Thien province is now a better place for the Vietnamese families to grow and prosper.
