  • Description

    A detachment of Cambodian troops arrived on Tuesday (July 7) at the Nha Trang Air Base in South Vietnam to undergo combat training with South Vietnamese officers.

    Since the pull-out of United States troops from Cambodia on the last day of June, the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) has taken the same "paternalistic" attitude towards the Cambodian troops as the US forced had for the ARVN itself in the earlier days of the Vietnamese conflict -- giving training and support to the estimated 10,000 Cambodian recruits who are scheduled to arrive in South Vietnam during this month.

    These first detachments at Nha Trang were met by ARVN officers who explained the first steps of the training schedule through an interpreter. Then, still wearing a variety of uniforms and carrying the arms which they had brought with them from Cambodia, the recruits went to their quarters.
