Leaflet dropped during the War. The idea was to encourage entry to the "Chu Hoi" program by thinking about the effect of war on the family.

Another great leaflet depicting the weapons the enemy faced. Their generals and politicians used their soldiers like canon fodder, with 1.4 million KIA during the war (more than 24 times the US KIA ). In 1965 and 1966 we admired their soldier's bravery, especially the NVA, and deplored their leader's communist fanaticism and effort to inflict the communist will on the South. And we still respect their soldiers today. The Vietnamese writing on the back side of the pamphlet encourages "Chu Hoi". (Would like to have an exact translation.)
Communist soldiers, believed to have been KIA somewhere between Plei Me and the Cambodian border. We honor them as worthy opponents and brave soldiers.
Unknown. I.D. this soldier
