VIETNAMESE TRAINING CAMP. Nui Dat, South Vietnam. A trainee at the Nui Dat camp practices the manner in which he will use the butt end of his M-16 rifle in hand to hand combat 8/19/1969. The training includes no field operations because, in the words of the American advisor, "it would look bad for a company to go AWOL." The trainees are ex-draft dodgers who need to be guarded closely. (UPI Photo)
