The report put the total budgeted Cost of the War at about $120 billion or $600 per capita. The difference represents spending that probably would have occurred anyhow. In addition to direct costs the study said War produced outlays for foreign Aid veterans benefits and other programs will continue for years after the conflict is settled. Committee head Fulbright the Arkansas Democrat who is chairman of the foreign relations committee said a it is ironic that the War which started ostensibly As one to defend Freedom and democracy in South Vietnam May have the effect instead of seriously undermining democracy in the United a in retrospect it is tragically Clear that the almost $200 billion estimated by this study to be the Cost of the War accrued so far would have been better devoted to solving the problems of our own society rather than in Pursuit of a futile military adventure which has served Only to exacerbate them a Fulbright said. He said the direct and indirect costs of the War a will have an enduring effect on our a the Survey spells out the casualty figures�?827,000 ., South vietnamese and Allied military personnel Over a million civilian casualties in South Vietnam and countless thousands in Laos and Cambodia a Fulbright said.

Page 7d is concern for Viet vets coming too late by Tom Tiede new York Nea the United states attitude toward its 2.8 million veterans of the Southeast asian War can be put quite briefly in the Early 1060s the nation did no to know its soldiers were fighting in the Middle 1960s the nation knew but did no to care much a but it May be time and neglect the nation is beginning to know and care much a but it May be too late. Not since the final months and immediate after years of the civil War has America treated its Battle veterans so shabbily As it has in recent times. Then it was the losing veterans the Southern soldiers who were ignored and waved off. As that War neared end rebel soldiers were often denied Aid and assistance by confused and bitter Southern citizens when the War was Over the rebel veterans often had to fight their Way Back into Good graces and decent jobs. Battle Back again now again it might be argued our returning soldiers Are losers. Or at least not winners. And this might explain the reluctance of the citizenry to Honor them the business world to Welcome them and the Congress to protect them. So now again our veterans have to Battle Back into society. A a let me give you a personal example a says John Todd a onetime helicopter Pilot in Vietnam. A before i entered the service i was a Good student a very Good student. I had taken one National College examination and scored Over 600 a Good enough for any school in the nation. But when i got Back from Vietnam i found that hard As i tried i could not win acceptance to top schools. I submitted application after application but could not do it. Finally somebody advised me not to put my service record on my applications. They said to put Down anything a that i was a drug addict for two years a anything. That Way if my forms were read by an Antiwar administrator id have a hell of a lot better Todd says he does no to know if Many veterans Are having similar problems getting Back into College. A but in be heard a lot of Guys art1.�?� Todd by the Way was shot Down in Vietnam a serving my country a a leaving him almost totally Blind. It is of course presumptuous and unfair to draw a conclusion Here that Many College administrators a purposely denying enrolment to men solely because they were in Vietnam. Yet there is no denying that it 1ms happened at least occasionally a and that it can happen at All is part of the plight of today a veterans. Mounting evidence further there is mounting evidence that such things Are happening in other aspects of the society As Well. Bruce Kessler a Brooklyn born former Vietnam Marine says a the whole country is full of examples where veterans have been and Are being discriminated against. Take jobs. Today there Are More than Joo too Vietnam veterans out of work. Why is this some of it is due to the general economic situation of course. But also i Ani convinced that Many employers just done to want Vietnam veterans on the Job. The employers Arentt always being mean a just cautious. They hear All these stories circulated about Vietnam gis and they simply done to want a Bunch of dope addicts or baby Bayon eters on the baby Bayon eters baby Bayon eters dope addicts is this what american businessmen american educators american people think about the Vietnam Veteran sadly it sometimes is. Call it Vogue stigma. Ifs the fashion to malign Large forces of the Vietnam soldiers for the turn to Page 2a, col.
