Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I respectfully request a copy of your Agency's declassified file on General Nguyen Van Hieu of the South Vietnamese Army.

He is my brother and was killed in his office at the headquarters of the Third Corps stationed at Bien Hoa, where he held the position of Deputy Commander of the Third Corps, two weeks before the fall of Saigon into the hands of the North Vietnamese Communist in April 1975. At that time he was in close relationship with Mr. Richard Peters who was the American General Consul in Bien Hoa at that time.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Tin Nguyen
