Abstract:

With the Department of Defense DOD now being engaged in reducing U.S. combat operations and related military activities in Vietnam, the General Accounting Office GAO has undertaken a series of reviews of policies and procedures being applied in the phasedown and of results being attained. GAOs objective is to identify problems being encountered, focusing particularly on the logistics aspects, and to bring these problems promptly to the attention of the responsible military commanders and the Secretary of Defense while the phasedown continues. This first GAO report is directed primarily to matters connected with the third incremental reduction in troop strength 50,000 completed April 15, 1970.
