(Qui Nhon, South Vietnam) Pretty girls arrive in South Vietnam to visit and entertain Korean GI's of Tiger and White Horses Divs. Soldiers operate in Qui Nhon area, holding South Vietnam central coast where 900,000 people live. They don't take prisoners. North Vietnam and Viet Cong avoid them. Washington, DC underwrites much of South Korea's presence in South Vietnam. South Koreans wonder why Americans have deserted them, but they may soon leave South Vietnam too.
