  • Description

    The village of South Vietnam are proving their resilience once again as they recover from the recent battles near Saigon between South Vietnamese and Communist troops.

    When an "in-place" ceasefire seemed imminent late last month, many bitter battles broke out in villages near Saigon as both sides wrestled for control of places and people.

    An My, about 25 miles north of the South Vietnamese capital, is a typical example - twice South Vietnamese forces recaptured it.

    At present, all is quiet in An My but the people are certain to come under pressure again when another ceasefire appears likely.

    In the meantime, the patient villagers set about the task of rebuilding their homes and lives. They waste nothing -- even spent shell casings come in handy.

    Throughout the country though, there are many other villagers whose homes are still too insecure to enable them to return. They're living along main highways, eking out a living until they can go back.
