Back: Cadre and soldiers of C1 / D445
My name is Nguyen Van Chien of C1 / D445. I rallied to the GVN at Dat Do district on 19 February 1971 and was warmly welcomed and treated well. This is contrary to the communist propaganda that returnees will be tortured by the GVN. Today I really enjoy a free life. I do not have to be hungry and thirsty in the deep jungles anymore.
I heartily call upon you who are still in the VC ranks to shake off sleep and return to the National just cause to enjoy a happy life with your family.
Affectionately Yours
Nguyen Van Chien
