Bob, 
The Chicago Tribune ran an article on December 29, 1966 about a Saigon Dock Strike.  It included the following statement:: "Moyers said the Vietnamese were hired to work at Newport with the understanding that they would be employed only until United States troops were available to replace them."  That makes me believe that the audio clip is from very late December1966 or early January 1967. 
EVERYONE    Anyone know or have any information on SPC Del Barnes?
