                     VC Policy Concerning Treatment of US and Third
                  Country POW and KIA.

                   Letter, dated 1966 from B2, P56 [Go Mon Sub-
                Region, MR IV] provides specific regulations
                concerning treatment of US, VN and third country
                prisoners of war, KIA and handling of personal
                belongings of prisoners.

                   In regard to US and third country prisoners,
                document indicates that [VC} should strive to
                subdue their indignation in spite of their
                provacations so as to keep them alive and to rapidly
                evacuate them to [VC] rear areas. Such prisoners of
                war will be granted reasonable food allocations.
                Prisoners of war will be employed to bury the unevacuated
                Allied KIA. However, corpes of US and Third
                country personnel should be secretly buried to
                facilitate "future political offensives". Except
                military equipment, personal belongings of prisoners
                will not be removed. However, those KIA will be
                considered as captured materials and will be disposed
                of in accordance with the orders of appropriate
                authorities.
