Because guerrilla warfare basically derives from the masses and is supported by them, it can neither exist nor flourish if it separates itself from their sympathies and co-operation….The moment that this war of resistance dissociates itself from the masses of the people is the precise moment that it dissociates itself from hope of ultimate victory…

I served and lived (24/7) in the Duc Duc Refugee Village from April 1970 to August 1970.   Seven months after I left the peasant-farming village, it was massacred.   (March 30, 31, 1971)

I will place some  facts surroundng the massacre of the Duc Duc Refugee Village on this webpage.
 
Unless a formal investigation was made, calling eye-witnesses and all;  the final truth why over three hundred men, women and children were killed or wounded, and an estimated 2,000 homes were intentionally burned down and will never be known.
 
However, the evidence is very interesting.

Less than a month after the massacre of the Duc Duc Refugee Village,  Senator John Kerry became a spokesperson and negotiator for the communist government in Vietnam.   At the time, John Kerry was an officer in the United States Navy.
 

Sen. Kerry met with the Viet Cong government to negotiate a peace settlement without the authorization of our government:

"I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh's points it has been stated time and time again, and was stated by Senator Vance Hartke when he returned from Paris, and it has been stated by many other officials of this Government, if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal the prisoners of war would be returned." (Vietnam Veterans Against the War Statement by John Kerry to the Senate Committee of Foreign Relations, April 23, 1971.)

WHAT  MADE  KILLING  PEASANTS  ON  A  TIME  SCHEDULE  SO  IMPORTANT...
 
The Vietnamese communists must have felt there would be a reaction in America.   Even during the Vietnam War, a massacre of hundreds and hundreds of peasant men, women and children would trigger a negative response.
 
The Vietnamese communists were taking a big chance that such a massacre could turn the American People against them.

What was going on in America to make the massacre so timely...
 
 
What stories were being covered by the American News Media: in print and on radio and television news?  

 
These are the two biggest news stories at the time of the Duc Duc Refugee Village Massacre.
 
  • March 29, 1971 - William Calley is found guilty of 22 murders in My Lai massacre and sentenced to life in prison.  He is later pardoned.
  • March 29, 1971A Los Angeles, California jury recommends the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers.
  • THE  MASSACRE  WAS  MARCH 30,  MARCH 31,  APRIL 1,  1971

     
     
    Ever since the My Lai Massacre of March 16, 1968, the American News Media was carrying almost daily stories of American atrocities in Vietnam.   If the American News Media did not hear of a new attrocity, they would always bring up the My Lai Massacre. 
     
    However, a number of months before the Duc Duc Refugee Village Massacre, the News Media hooked their wagon to a raising star, who proclaimed repeatedly before cameras and microphones that he participated in atrocities, while serving in Vietnam.   Being still active, and an officer in the United States Navy, this self-admitted war-criminal condemned his fellow Vienam veterans for being baby-killers and village-burners.   He was so convincing with his first-hand accounts of American War-Crimes that he appeared before members of the United States Senate and swore to these same atrocities.
     
    By the time, the few stories of the Duc Duc Refugee Village Massacre came out, they were quickly forgotten.  April 1971 is when this Naval Officer swore to the U.S. Senate that he personally participated in War Crimes in Vienam.  The rest is history.
     
    Not one of John Kerry's claims to have witnessed war crimes first hand were true.  Although this former Naval Officer was found to have lied to he U.S. Senate and to the American People and the World, it was his lies that Vietnam veterans were remembered for the next thirty-plus years after the war. 
     
    The Massacre of the Duc Duc Refugee Village was mostly forgotten, but for a few Americans who served in the area.   And the family and friends of those innocent lives killed and the memories of the survivors...   

    April 18, 1971 John Kerry first appeared on NBC's Meet the Press with Al Hubbard and made the following statement.:

      MR. KERRY (Vietnam Veterans Against the War): There are all kinds of atrocities and I would have to say that, yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free-fire zones. I conducted harassment and interdiction fire. I used 50-caliber machine guns which we were granted and ordered to use, which were our only weapon against people. I took part in search-and-destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this is contrary to the laws of warfare. All of this is contrary to the Geneva Conventions and all of this ordered as a matter of written established policy by the government of the United States from the top down. And I believe that the men who designed these, the men who designed the free-fire zone, the men who ordered us, the men who signed off the air raid strike areas, I think these men, by the letter of the law, the same letter of the law that tried Lieutenant Calley, are war criminals.

    Kerry introduced Hubbard as a former Air Force captain who had spent two years in Vietnam and was wounded in action.

    April 22, 1971 John Kerry, director of the Vietnam Veterans against the War, testified before special session the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for two hours about alleging widespread atrocities by U.S. troops, and the official policies in Vietnam which were illegal, according to international law. He asks the Congressional panel "How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?"

      "They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country." (1 - 2)

      * * *

      "I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh's points it has been stated time and time again, and was stated by Senator Vance Hartke when he returned from Paris, and it has been stated by many other officials of this Government, if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal the prisoners of war would be returned." (3)

      * * *

      Senator Stuart SYMINGTON (D- Mo.): Mr. Kerry, from your experience in Vietnam do you think it is possible for the President or Congress to get accurate and undistorted information through official military channels."

      KERRY: I had direct experience with that. Senator, I had direct experience with that and I can recall often sending in the spot reports which we made after each mission; and including the GDA, gunfire damage assessments, in which we would say, maybe 15 sampans sunk or whatever it was. And I often read about my own missions in the Stars and Stripes and the very mission we had been on had been doubled in figures and tripled in figures. . . . I also think men in the military, sir, as do men in many other things, have a tendency to report what they want to report and see what they want to see. (4)

    A large group of veterans march to the steps of the Supreme Court to ask the Court why it has not ruled on the constitutionality of the war. They sing God Bless America. One hundred and ten are arrested for disturbing the peace and are led off the steps with their hands clasped behind their heads. Lobbying on Capitol Hill continues all day. A District Court judge angrily dissolves his injunction order, rebuking Justice Department lawyers for requesting the court order and then not enforcing it.

    Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General and lawyer for the vets, spoke on the Supreme Court's ban against the veteran's campsite at the foot of Capitol Hill. John Kerry can be seen pictured on the podium.

    Veterans stage a candlelight march around the White House. A huge American flag is carried upside down as a signal of distress. The march ends back at the camp when the flag carriers mount the stage.

    April 23, 1971 Veterans threw their medals and ribbons over a makeshift fence on the steps of the Capitol. Kerry claimed to throw his ribbons over the fense, then claimed they were someone else's ribbons or medals.

    Congressman Jonathan Bingham held hearings with former intelligence and public information officers over distortion of news and information concerning the war. Senators George McGovern and Philip Hart held hearings on atrocities committed by U.S. soldiers in Vietnam.

    The NBC Nightly News reveals that Al Hubbard had not been an Air Force Captain, as he claimed, but a staff sergeant E-5. A later investigation of Hubbard's military records shows that he was never assigned to Vietnam.

    Kerry is interviewed in a New York Times article titled “An Angry War Veteran,” in which he admits to the reporter that he enlisted in the Swift Boats to avoid the war in Vietnam, since the boats were only used for patrol duty:

      “That first trip to Vietnam piqued his curiosity, 'I wanted to go back and see for myself what was going on, but I didn’t really want to get involved in the war.' So late in 1968 he volunteered for an assignment on "swift boats" - the short, fast aluminum craft that were then used for patrol duty off the coast of Vietnam.

      "Two weeks before he arrived in Vietnam as a swift boat commander, he said, 'they changed the policy on the use of the boats - decided to send them up the river to prove to the Vietcong that they didn’t own the waters.'

      The river missions involved shooting at sampans and at huts along the banks and suddenly, Mr. Kerry recalls, we said, ‘hey, wait a minute - we don’t know who these people are.’ So we started to beach our boats to go to ashore and find out what we had been shooting at.”

    May 25, 1971 Kerry appears on 60 Minutes with Morley Safer. Asked whether he wants to be President of the United States, Kerry replies in the negative, and calls it a "crazy question."

     
     
    WHETHER  INTENTIONAL  OR  NOT...
     
    Back in April/May 1971, as Senator John Kerry was appearing on television talk shows around America condemning his brother and sister Vietnam vets for being Baby-Killers and Village-Burners, he was helping cover up the Duc Duc Refugee Village Massacre.

                Jack,
     
                I found the following report from the 7th Marines Command Chronology dated March 4, 1968. Although the grid coordinates are incorrect the village names are the same as those where you served with CAP 2-9-2 (aka NOV 3).  It seems like the massacre in 1971 was not the first time the villagers had been brutalized.

                         (d)      040500H:  Company I searched the area of (AT869571) and found 40 civilians KIA, 77  WIA, and 14 WIA  (at this point there are several letters I can't read ...Sandy) 
    The villages of  DUC DUC, PHU DA, and AN HOA had been mortared, and the enemy had moved through the area burning huts and throwing grenades at the civilians in their bomb shelters. The enemy told civilians that the reason for the raid was to force the people to return across the river to the Arizona area and grow rice.
