Letters from servicemen Tell of being denied promotion and even of being threatened with shipment to Vietnam if they fail to buy Bonds the subcommittee also has received reports of Marine sergeants being sent into the Foxholes in Vietnam to sign up fighting men for Bond purchases. Sen. Sam j. Ervin jr., d-n.c., subcommittee chairman has political scientists introduced a Bill that would among other things protect government employees against any form of compulsion to buy Bonds or contribute to Charity. In a recent letter to Thomas Morris assistant Secretary of defense for manpower Ervin wrote a it is becoming glaringly apparent that legislation is needed to protect servicemen As much a or More so a As it is to protect civilian Morris said the defense department not Only does not authorize coercion of civilian and military personnel to buy savings Bonds. Or contribute to charitable campaigns but has not and will not condone such coercion. Ervin replied a the numerous complaints from civilian and military personnel throughout the world indicate that the Mere continuance of the Pentagon a support of established grievance procedures is insufficient. The senator declined to submit to the Pentagon for investigation the names of persons who had complained to the subcommittee. A the risk of reprisals is not Worth such an exercise in futility a Ervin wrote. The senators letter said that a a Marine general has been quoted As saying that his men in charge of the Bond drive in Vietnam were not deterred from achieving the unit a they went to Forward positions and interviewed marines in fighting holes and kept track of the patrols so that every individual had an Opportunity to hear How he could invest his Money in a worthwhile savings program a he quoted the general As saying.
