Part of The Vietnam Collection.
GI's in Vietnam listen to Richard M. Nixon speech proposing cease-fire: troops of 4th cavalry 25th division gathered around a radio, large group fills the screen with khaki, very good shot. Nixon's voice heard: "...propose that all forces throughout IC cease firing their weapons...a ceasefire in place...an end to the killing.." Med. shots and close-ups. Strong sense of the troops, different races, bare chests, khaki. Visual of radios. At end of speech, music again on radio as group breaks up. Good atmosphere.
