An interesting bit of nostalgia from 44 years ago. Thanks to Brian McEnany. Spelling and punctuation left as found.
One more Christmas comes to you on the South Vietnam battlefront, while in the other side of Pacific the American people are happily welcoming Christmas and newyear with their own traditions.
Certainly everybody in your families feels unhappy for lacking of your very dear features around the party-table or under the Christmas tree with the bright light of various colores. They love and miss you so very much, they are felling sad and worrying about you because they don’t know whether you will be present on next Christmas or you will never return to your native land.
Hundreds of thousands of American youth will never meet their loveones. Many American mothers and wives are wearing deep mourning for their sons and husbands on this Christmas.
What more unhappy is their deer men are not sacrificing their lives for the interests of the American people. They are forced to carry out the aggressive policy of Johnson Government in Vietnam which against God’s will and American people’s conscience.
Johnson-McNamara and the like are lions which wear the mash of young sheep, they are very cruel not only with the Vietnamese people but also with American people.
To celebrate Christmas:
You do pray God to check the bloody hands of the Johnson clique which stained the blood of the America and Vietnamese peoples.
Resolutely ask to be sent back to you nativeland your lives can’t be changed by dollars and medals.
We wish you a very merry Christmas – a very happy Newyear beside your families in your homeland.
