DAILY OFFICIAL' BULLETIN,

Long Binh Army Post, S. Vi-1
etnam (DNS) - At six-thirty
in the morning, in front of the
labor -gates of the largest U.S.
Army installation in S. Viet-
nam, thousands of Vietnamese
workers queue up to enter the
post for the new work day. The
chattering of men and women
of all ages is all but drowned
out by the raucous noise of Lam-
bretta "buses" and military ve-
hicles bringing the laborers from
the Saigon suburbs.
It is one of the, lesser-known
facts of the Vietnamese war that
the U.S. Army hires tens of
thousands of war refugees, dis-
abled veterans, and other Viet-
namese civilians to do the heavy
labor and menial chores on the
military installations.
On Long Binh Post, thenum-
her of Vietnamese nationals em-
ployed i equivalent to almost
three-folths of the number of
U.S. military men garrisoned
there. The Vietnamese dig dit-
ches, wash uniforms, wait on
tables in the mess halls and
clubs, operate telephone switch-
boards, empty garbage pails, ex-
terminate roaches, and sell ca-
merls and stereo equipment in
the post exchanges.'
By Vietnamese standards,
they are well compensated for
their labor. A mess hall wait-
ress earns eight- thousand pias-
ters a month, almost twice that
earned by an unmarried private
in the Vietnamese army. For her
pay, the waitress must ,,work
from six a.m. until 7:30 p.m. six
days a week. At the market rate
this monthly salary is worth
above $20.00.
Though the Vietnamese labor-
ers are paid more working for
the Ainericans, the U.S. Army is
getting a real bargain. The Ar-
my h'ires maids to sweep rooms,
make beds, polish jungle boots,
and wash and neatly press jun-
gle fatique uniforms for each
GI daily. For this service, the
GI contributes about $12 a
month.
The -GI encounters Vietna-
mese laborers and white-collar
workers everywhere. He is cus-
omarily awakened in the morn-

ing by his "mama-san" as she
comes to collect the day's laun-
dry. He goes to breakfast, where.
food prepared with the aid o
Vietnamese KP's is served by
Vietnamese on the chow line.
If he is an officer, he gets table
service by attractively - clad
young women.
At work, if he has an office
job, he will be aided by Vietna-
mese clerks, typists, stenogra-
phers, and telephone operators.
If he is involved in maintenance,
or construction, he will super-
vise gangs of Vietnamese work-
ers who are brought in on a
daily-hire basis, or he, will re-
quest assistance from one of the
civilian contractors, who hire
their own Vietnamese labor.
Most of the Vietnamese work-
ers, including ditch-diggers and
garbage "meiy" are women, for
the simple reason that most
young Vietnamese men j are
fighting either for the Saigon
government or for the NLF.
They range in age from adoles-
cents to elderly grandmothers,
and few escape heavy labor.
Vietnamese men who work on
the p6st are usually too old to
fight or they are disabled veter-
ans who have been discharged
from the Army. However, their
disability must not 'be severe
pnough to prevent them from
performing ordinary tasks. The
U.S. Army has no rehabilitation
program; for .handicapped Viet-
namese workers.
The daily contact between the
GI's and- the, Vietnamese work-
ers:fosters some mutual under-
standing between the two
groups. Indeed, some friendships
and even marriages develop be-
tween Vietnamese and GI's..But
generally, ,a great deal of re-
sentment develops between the
Americans and their Vietnamese
employees.
The reasons are many: Viet-
namese usually seek jobs on the
Army base only out of economic
necessity. They consider the
Americans foreigners on their
soil, and this aggravates the ten-
sions which normally'develop in
an employee-employer ;relation-
ship. f
