(Advocate Photo) Local Pilot Says 'Enemy Pleased U.S. in Viet Nam By HENRY WOLFF JK. Advocate Staff Writer In war, it is unusual for the enemy lo like your presence, but in Viet Nam the situation is dif- ferent, according to Capt. Vic- tor A. Weber of 2204 N. Lib- erty, who is home on leave af- ter 11% months there as a U.S. Army helicopter pilot: He sees the enemy Viet Cong as people who actually like the United Stales' presence in the unique war without battle day lime was returned against iines.

The newspaper story that concerned Ihe House commit- tee reported that the two American Air Force pilots died, not from Communist bul- lels, but because of the obsoles- cence of (heir T2B single en- gine, propeller-type planes. Capl. Weber said such planes, more commonly used for train- ing, were flown in the northern section of the Southeast Asian country only by Vietnamese pilots, who "gave us real good support." The Vietnamese also used some AD-fi aircraft, an attack bomber.

Cong manage lo get their hands on some of She U. S. aid meant1 or the Vietnamese we are try- ng to assist. In any war, Uie enemy man- ages to obtain some items from .he opposition, but the appre- lending of aid 'in Viet Nam is made :easier since the" enemy s scattered throughout the coun- ry and is often indistinguish- able from Vielhamese friendly to the United States. Capt. Weber describes the Viet Cong as an. enemy who can hide his weapon in the Dush, appear to be a friendly Vietnamese, and Ihen pull out lis weapon and kill you when your back is turned. When U.S. aid is dished out in the various villages, there is nothing to keep him from playing Uie role of a U. S. sympathizer as one of his methods of thievery. He said the Army air mission in Viet Nam is strictly one of sup- porting Ihe Vietnamese. Army helicopters, though armed, do not carry Vielnamese crew members and are not allowed to attack the enemy unless fired upon first. The Vicloria officer said the charges against Ihe U n i t o c States of using obsolete a i r- crafl, now being investigated by Congress, definitely did not ap ply to his company.
