(UP1) Eighty-one Americans-most of them Green Berets—lost their lives in secret wartime mis* sions in Laos and Cambodia, the Pentagon has revealed.

Praised Pentagon Sen. Harold E. Hughes, I> Iowa, whose Senate subcommit tee has been investigating secret U.S. . operations in Indochina, praised the Pentagon for voluntarily releasing the information but said it did not justify the original order to falsify the records or the decision to give out erroneous information. "It is doubly tragic that even their loved ones did not know of the heroism of these men who died while on highly hazardous intelligence missions in enemy territory," Hughes said. Jerry W. Friedheim, a Pentagon spokesman, said 55 of the deaths occurred in Laos where the secret missions started in 1965. The other 26 men died in Cambodia from the period 1967 to "the early 1970s," Friedheim said.
