English Translation:
The South Vietnamese war has been protracted for some time. You know that the parties decision has been extended and studied; many victory notices disseminated have enlarged upon a military success which occurred upon the battle field in a contrary manner. In reality they have suffered the worst causalities of the war, and these still continue.

You never really forget the causalities and wailing during an operation under gunfire and the terrible sight in the battlefield. Your comrades were sacrificed and many other comrades rallied to the GVN. You were hungry, food, ammunition and medicine caches were permanently empty guerrillas were separated and the local cadre were incapacitated.
