General Note / OCR

8 Fighting Forces: 'Vietnamization' sounded good, but turning over U.S. Coast Guard cutters to the Vietnamese Navy was not an easy task.
12 Personality: Air Vice Marshal Nguyen Cao Ky would lead the Skyraider attack- the VNAF's first airstrike on the North.
14 Arsenal: Converted from a trainer, the Cessna A-37 'Tweety Bird' flew ground attack for the USAF, the VNAF... and the NVA.
54 Book Reviews: The State Department's official history of the Vietnam War: Continuity all the way, from JFK to LBJ.
64 Perspectives: For 130,000 South Vietnamese refugees fleeing the NVA blitzkrieg in April 1975, their new life began in relocation centers on Guam.
22 Winning Hearts and Minds: At the heart of civil operations and revolutionary development support were the U.S. province senior advisers, who, according to one, advised on 'virtually everything.'
30 Flight of the Phoenix: Destroying the Viet Cong infrastructure was the key to winning the guerrilla war. The Phoenix program was designed to do just that.
38 War Within A War: I Corps 1966: The Buddhist uprisings in South Vietnam's northernmost provinces wre aimed at the Catholics running the government in Saigon. But the real winners were the atheists in Hanoi.
46 South's Navy RAGs: The first Vietnamese river assault boat was commissioned on April 10, 1953, and signaled the birth of the Vietnamese Navy. Mirroring the struggle of the VNN as a whole, the history of the River Assault Groups was at once heroic and disappointing.
