    Background: Elements of the Korean Tigers are trying to make close friend with the Central Vietnam highlanders "Montagnagnards" right after they have moved to the Duc-Co Special Camp, 35 miles South West of Pleiku, and 220 miles North East of Saigon, on the 9th of July, from their tactical area of Oui-Nhon, where the Korean Tiger Division Headquarters is located.

    The Korean Tigers are making friends with the Montagnagnards dancing and drinking as the custom of the highlanders at the Duc-Co Special Camp. This kind of civic action is very important in the Republic of Vietnam to pacify the Communist influenced poor villagers as like to clear and destroy the Vietcong stronghold, while the tigers patrolling the Cambodian border to block the Ho' trial.
