The Observer: News for the American Soldier in Vietnam, 1962-1973

The Observer was a weekly newspaper published by the Command Information Division of the U.S. Military Assistance Command’s Office ofInformation. It was the official organ of the Military Assistance Command, and it carried official news about and for American troops in Vietnam. Assuch, it goes without saying that it was carefully edited to make certain it did not print news articles favorable to the communist enemy. The MilitaryAssistance Command spread more than 80,000 weekly Observers among all points in Vietnam in which American troops were domiciled.
