General Lemnitzer Visits Vietnam

Mar. 28, 1962 - The Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Lyman Lemnitzer, flew to the village of Binh Hung in South Vietnam today to discuss problems with a soldier-priest. Most of the 1,200 residents of the village and the Sea Swallows, their force of irregulars, and their commander, the Rev. Nguyen Lac Hoa (pictured center), turned out to meet the general. “This is an example for the entire Free World to emulate,” General Lemnitzer said. “Against this kind of courage, communism simply cannot win.”
