Children at the front gate 1. A picture of the children at the front gate of Can Tho Army Airfield.  If they had work permits, they would gather outside the gate and beg, fight and crawl over each other to gain a daily work detail to police areas, cut grass and etc. for very little money and food. Photo by: Rick Stayner 1972-73

Another picture of the children 2. Another picture of the children at the front gate.   The type of scene that still wrenches my heart, makes me angry that we could not do more for them, and brings tears to my eyes when I remember. And Yes, the older street-wise children could slit your pocket with a razor, so that the change would fall on the ground, and the group would grab for it and run.  And yes they were masters at slitting a  watch band to steal your watch, and you would never feel it.   But that was what they had to do in order to survive.
