America is being torn apart by dissenting voices concerning its involvement in Vietnam. We note with approval the promise of President Nixon to disengage us from a war that has lasted too long and brought sorrow and suffering to too many homes.

We wish that it were possible to end our involvement overnight but we take notice of the fact that the consequences of such a precipitate action might worsen an already difficult situation.

Therefore the National Association of Evangelicals assures our President of our approval of his intention to end our involvement in the war as soon as possible and of our prayers to hasten this objective. We further call for massive help and rehabilitation of the lands that have been devastated and the people who have suffered so greatly.
