    In Saigon on Monday (9 July), President Nguyen Van Thieu attended ceremonies honouring South Vietnam's war veterans.

    President Thieu, who was accompanied by South Vietnam's Vice-President Tran Van Huong and the Minister for War Veterans Major General Pham Van Dong, presented certificates to the disabled and medals to outstanding officers who served in the South Vietnamese Armed Forces. Most of the veterans attending Monday ceremonies were in wheelchairs.

    A special fund was set up by the South Vietnamese government to help those veterans disabled by the war. The fund, which was organised in 1968, totals up to GBP 10 million sterling.
