Wives fight alongside husbands PHNOM PENH (Reuter) The wives of Cambodia's gov- ernment troops fight alongside their husbands when Communist-led insurgents at- tack. The latest example of their heroism came at the beginn- ing of January during the in- surgents' annual dry season offensive around Phnom Penh. The 7th Division headquar- ters, about 15 miles northwest of the capital, was cut off for a week and subjected to an al- most non-stop bombardment of mortars, rockets and ar- tillery fire. On one occasion, the insur- gents broke through the per- imeter wall and began hand- to-hand fighting with the gar- rison. The wives rushed to their husbands' aid, grabbing bayonets, iron bars and anything they could -use as clubs or weapons against the insurgents. The fighting was bitter. Its exact, toll was not known. However, during the whole week-long siege, some 80 de- fenders were killed. Twenty of these were soldiers and another 20 were wives. The rest were other of them children. Usually when danger threat- ens a camp, the wives help out by reloading magazine clips for the American-built M-16 rifles used by Cambodian in- fantry or by priming fuses for mortar crews. In the fighting at divisional headquarters, first cut off on New Year's Day, some wives attended to'the wounded. But most stayed by their husbands along the perimeter wall. Families of Cambodian troops travel with the soldiers, only leaving them when the troops launch a direct attack on insurgent positions. The children, too, remain with their fathers as much as possible. Sometimes these military families live in front- line bunkers which are not much more than large holes in the ground. At any government military base, families can be found living in huts made of locally available materials such as palm and banana leaves inter- woven with bamboo stays. Sometime's parents, younger brothers and sisters also join the soldiers in these camps. A 12-year-old boy in sub- urban Etobicoke says it's like living in two worlds. The boy, a Grade 6 student, recently wrote a letter outlin- ing some of his feelings, fears and frustrations. The letter, printed below, was first read on the CBC radio show, Fresh Air. The identity of the boy has been withheld. I live in an Italian world at home and in a Cana'dian world at school. I even have two names. My mother and father call me Giuseppe, my teacher and school friends call me 'Joe. Before my family came to Canada, we lived in a small village in Italy. The school there was very small one teacher and one classroom. We went to school from till and learned mostly reading, writing and arithmetic. The teacher was strict. Every day she gave us homework If we didn't do the homework, the teacher would go to our house and let our parents know then we were punished. The school I go to in Canada is different. There are many classrooms and many teachers and hundreds of boys and girls. We still learn reading, writing and arithmetic but we have many books, games we can play, paints, scissors, all kinds of colored paper and so on My teacher is not as strict as my teacher in Italy was. We hardly ever get homework and sometimes we can even talk to each other and the teacher doesn't get angry. We have movies and television in our classroom and we do much more painting and many other things which I never did in Italy. School is more interesting but it sure causes problems. My parents think school should be the same as it was in Italy. They don't seem to understand some of the things we do at school in Canada. They keep asking me about homework and when I tell them that the teacher didn't give me any, they just shake their heads My mother still takes me to and from school. I told her I can go by myself, but it didn't do any good. Some of the boys are teasing me and calling me "sissy." My parents are not my only problem. I wish my teacher was more understanding. Last year, when I arrived in Canada, I was sent twice a day to the Canadian class- room to learn English. Now I can speak and understand English fairly well but sometimes I don't understand -my teacher and she thinks I should. English is very dif- ficult. The same Word in English can have many different meanings. My teacher uses words I know but sometimes she uses them in a way I do not understand. 1 wish my parents knew more about Canadian schools. I wish my teacher knew more about how hard it is to learn -English. In fact I wish they all knew more about me and my problems of two worlds.
