The major two components of the program were Provincial
Reconnaissance Units (PRUs) and regional interrogation centers.
PRUs would kill or capture "suspected VC members" as well as
"civilians" who were 'thought' to have information on VC
activities. Many of these people were taken to interrogation
centers and were "tortured" in an attempt to gain intelligence
on VC activities in the area.
The information extracted at the centers was given to military
who would use it to task the PRU with further "capture and
assassination" missions. The program's effectiveness was
measured in the number of VC members who were "neutralized", a
euphemism meaning imprisoned,
persuaded to defect, or killed.
The program was in operation between 1965 and 1972, and similar
efforts existed both before and after that period. By 1972,
Phoenix operatives had "neutralized" 81,740 suspected VC
operatives, informants and supporters, of
whom between 26,000 and 41,000 were killed.

His family were all Mormon's, mom was trying to raise me
as a Jehovah's Witness, and he and I grew close. Yet it
was when I only later understood the reason why he was
always at my house. I'd known him since the 2nd grade. I
met him in 1968 and his two older brothers were veterans
from the Vietnam war.
I also have twin brothers as well as two sisters that
are older then I am. But he was closer then my own
brothers were. Perhaps if was the empathy for his plight

When he started hanging around he never seemed like he

I'm not sure if it was all related to their experiences
in the war or not, or a form of PTSD that came after
their separation from their military service? They drank
