  • Description

    In South Vietnam U.S. Army medics are a vital part of the Army's MEDCAP program of fighting disease among the native civilian population. Northwest of Saigon in the village of Dau Tieng, U.S. Army Captain J. Rejtman examines and treats the more easily diagnosed illnesses that do no require elaborate clinical facilities.

    Captain Rejtman is a former medical exchange student from Columbia, South America who is now a U.S. Army doctor. On this visit most of the attention is devoted to the younger members of the village who like all children squall lustily at the doctor's "office." Captain Rejtman prescribes for his young clients through an interpreter.

    In addition to the MEDCAP'S medical assistance, the program is designed to help teach the villagers sanitation and the prevention of disease.
