    THE FIRST CONTINGENT OF SOUTH KOREAN MARINES IS NOW READY TO GO TO SOUTH VIETNAM. THE CONTINGENT WAS INSPECTED BY PRESIDENT PARK OF SOUTH KOREA WHO PRESENTED THE BRIGADE COLOURS TO THE BRIGADE COMMANDER.

    THE MARINES HAVE BEEN UNDERGOING TRAINING AT POHANG BASE SINCE THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY APPROVED THE PLAN OF SENDING ONE COMBAT DIVISION TO SOUTH VIETNAM SOME THREE MONTHS AGO. SOUTH KOREA NOW HAS JUST OVER 2,000 SUPPORT TROOPS STATIONED IN VIETNAM BUT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME SHE HAS SENT COMBAT TROOPS TO SOUTH VIETNAM.
