I don't imagine a lot of us need (or want) to know this, but in Vietnam, public urination by men and boys is entirely socially acceptable (but not for women or girls).
Numerous times while going down a road on convoy from one base camp to another we would pass through villages where there would be some guy letting it out by the roadside while a couple of Vietnamese women would be walking right by him and not paying him a bit of attention, having seen it all their lives.
But this was much more acceptable in the rural areas, while in the urban areas doing it was considered proof of being a "hick from the sticks."
Of course what inevitably happened in view of this was that American soldiers caught on to this, and some (certainly not all) of them would, while in village areas, wait for some Vietnamese girls to come by and then, with a big grin of their faces, whip it out and proceed to answer nature's call. How did the girls react to this as they passed by? Invariably with a grin and a giggle.
Not sure if the American command had this in mind when they encouraged the GI's to have "friendly relations with the locals."
