    Background: BATTLE-HARDENED UNITED STATES TROOPS HAVE ADOPTED A NEW ROLE AT SONG BE, IN NORTHERN SAIGON, 80 MILES (128 K.M.) NORTH OF THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE CAPITAL.

    FOR THE PAST FEW WEEKS INFANTRYMEN OF THE UNITED STATES FIRST BRIGADE HAVE BEEN REBUILDING A SCHOOL DESTROYED A MONTH AGO BY MORTAR FIRE.

    THE SCHOOL HAS TWO HUNDRED PUPILS, AND SINCE THE BUILDING WAS DAMAGED THEY HAVE BEEN ON HOLIDAY.

    THE INFANTRYMEN ARE BEARING THE COST OF REBUILDING THE SCHOOL THEMSELVES. WITH ASSISTANCE FROM SOME OF THE PUPILS, THE SOLDIERS EXPECT TO COMPLETE THE WORK IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

    IN THE MEANTIME, SOME OF THE SOLDIERS ARE GIVING LESSONS TO THE CHILDREN, SOME OF WHOM HAVE ALREADY FORGOTTEN HOW TO WRITE.
