Abstract : This monograph discusses in some detail the background of previous attempts by the U.S. Government, and the U.S. Army in particular, in the reception and care of refugees involved in a mass evacuation from a Communist dominated country. It covers the initial planning by FORSCOM to receive, house, and care for the Vietnamese Refugees until their removal from military jurisdiction. It covers political implications of the program and the selection of appropriate military installations for its implementation. It covers in some detail the many problems created for FORSCOM by the vastness of the program. It also includes the impact of this program on the overall readiness of FORSCOM's Active and Reserve Component units. It covers in some detail the actual operations at the Orote Point Camp, Guam; Fort Chaffee, Ark.; and Fort Indiantown Gap, Pa. (author)
