    Background: South Korea has now joined all its other foreign allies in withdrawing forces from South vietnam. The first South Koreans to be withdrawn sailed for home from Danang on Saturday.

    About 1,200 officers and mon from the Blue Dragon Marine Brigade lined up outside the Danang city Hall before they departed to take part in a colourful farewell ceremony.

    Among those at the send-off were Lieutenant-General Lee Sae-ho, the commander of South Korean forces in South Vietnam, and Lieutenant-General Hoang Xuan Lam, the local South Vietnamese commander.

    And adding colour and charm to the ceremony were at least a dozen (12) South Korean beauties dressed in their billowing national costume.

    Several marines were decorated by the South Vietnamese. The Blue Dragon Marines were the first South Korean troops to servo abroad. The rest of the 10,000-man brigade will withdrawn over the next seven months, reducing South Korean strength in South Vietnam to 38,000.

    After marching past the review dais, the marines boarded an American troopship for the voyage home to South Korea where a massive welcome awaits them.
