WASHINGTON, D.C. (LNS) "I wanted my words and facts that I put out to get back to the President, who is getting bad recommendations on Vietnamization and how effective it is and the time schedules involved. " In these words Lt. Col. Frank Miller summed up why the Army relieved him of his Vietnam c om mand. Miller was transferred out of Vietnam recently after he criticized the Laotian invasión and allowed an ABC televisión crew to film helicopters using napalm on enemy positions. Miller told ABC that the Laos operation was a "failure". An Army spokesman said Miller was transferred for "the best interest of the lst Aviation Brigade". Miller had held his command for eight years prior to his protest.
