The Observer was a weekly newspaper published by the Command Information Division of

the U.S. Military Assistance Command’s Office of Information. It was the official organ of the

Military Assistance Command, and it carried official news about and for American troops in

Vietnam. As such, it goes without saying that it was carefully edited to make certain it did not

print news articles favorable to the communist enemy. The Military Assistance Command

spread more than 80,000 weekly Observers among all points in Vietnam in which American

troops were domiciled.
