U.S. troops told not to fraternize with Canadians Tuesday, February 13, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - By RAY DICK SAIGON (CP) - United States soldiers have been told to stay away from the Canadian troops, at least when in uniform and in public. Although no one says so officially, one U.S. sergeant said the word has been "passed along." "It's not that we don't like the Canadians," the sergeant said, "but the brass is worried that such obvious fraternization would give the Viet- namese the wrong impression." "After all, Canada is on the international super v i s o r y force and is not supposed to be biased towards anyone." The Canadians, however, have not been given similar orders. "We were just told not to accept obvious favors from the Americans," said one Canadian officer. This didn't include use of the American mess facilities at Tan Son Nhut air base where the inter- national troops are staying. It's obvious the Americans are following orders. During the Canadians first few days in Saigon it wes a common sight downtown to see Canadians and Americans fraternizing on the streets and sitting together at bars and outdoor cafes. "Heck, it's only natural," said the American sergeant. "They talk like us, look like us and we have a lot in common being neighbors back home." Now the Canadians and Americans sit at separate tables, at least when they're in uiiform. The American sergeant said he wasn't told anything about fraternizing with the other troops of the international force-the Poles, Indonesians and Hungarians-but he was sure the order applied to them too. "We don't fraternize with them anyhow," he said. "We have a language problem." What do the Canadians and Americans talk about? "The usual things ... the war, girls, where to find t>3 good night spots in Saigon, sports, things like that." The Canadians will have to find . some new drinking friends soon. There are not many American soldiers left. All are to be out within 60 days of the ceasefire. And most are. happy to leave. "I feel sorry for you guys," said one American. - DC 1X1 > V) o z > an uu a.
