    TRANSCRIPT: "I would say the past has certainly been an eventful one for the Marines Corp. Figuratively speaking while I was on the front porch in the Pacific taking a good look at what was going on in Vietnam; while we had this matter open up in our backyard down in the Caribbean. I want to tell you I came back here really reassured an enthusiastic, particularly over their readiness. As I told you when I went out i told you I did not feel to optimistic about what I was going to find, but you can see me know I am not optimistic know. I can tell if we want to we can handle this problem, really our mission now at Da Nang is to secure security of the base. We have no orders to expand these operation, but we do conduct an aggressive combat killing operations in support of the mission. You can not defend a place like that by sitting on your ditty box you have got to get out an aggressive patrol and that is what our people are doing and one thing I enthusize to them while I was out there was to find the Viet Cong and kill them.
