Lieutenants Plan To Wed After Tour In Combat Zone

DUC PHO—Life is not a honeymoon In Vietnam, but it may lead to one for First Lieutenant Carl F. Stout and First Lieutenant Mary P. Reis.

On completion of their tours in Vietnam, the two Army officers plan to be married.

Most soldiers in the combat zone are troubled because they ale halfway around the world from their sweethearts, but you can even be troubled by being 40 miles apart, assures Lieutenant Stout.

Lieutenant Stout is an artillery forward observer in the 3rd Brigade, 25th Infantry Division near Due Pho while Lieutenant Reis is serving in the Army Nurse Corps at the 2nd Surgical hospital in Chu Lai.

Since arriving in Vietnam last December, the two have been able to see each other three times.

The artillery officer and his fiancée met in the officer’s club at Ft. Ord, Calif. About the time their romance began to flourish he received orders for Vietnam. The nurse then volunteered for duty in Vietnam.
