General Note / OCR

'You in Vietnam' is an overview of how a Marine survives in Vietnam and is subtitled Tactics & Techniques Employed by WestPac FMF Units. It ranges from the do's and don'ts of the Vietnamese culture, to proper search methods for a village, to a scene showing MPs clearing the brothels of Vietnam and street scenes in the cities and small villages of Vietnam. 'For Valor' recounts the heroism of Marine Corps Sergeant Robert E. O'Malley, Medal Of Honor recipient. The film begins with President Johnson presenting the medal to O'Malley. While the citation is read, detailing O'Malley's bravery in 1965, there are excellent clips of an intense fire-fight in Vietnam.
