Resor, who has just returned from a tour of South Vietnam, set no precise date on which the U.S. role in ground combat would end. But he told a news conference that by the autumn of this year, the United States will no longer have the capability to influence ground fighting significantly. At one point, Resor said the major combat role has already shifted to South Vietnamese government forces. Later in the conference he amended this, saying the major combat role will have shifted by the end of this summer. Resor declined to speculate on the rate of withdrawal of U.S. forces beyond December, at which time the number of Americans in South Vietnam will have fallen to 184,000 from a peak of more than 500,000. when President Nixon took office at the beginning of 1969.
