The primary target audiences of the Vietnamese Political Warfare was the ARVN soldier and his family, the civilian population, the common enemy (the VC and NVA troops), and the Free World Military Forces and their allies. The main objective is to obtain voluntary support for the Government of Vietnam. To meet the POLWAR objective, social service support is provided to military and civilian personnel subordinate to the Ministry of Defense and their dependents. The end goal of this support is to create the conditions under which a soldier will desire to be loyal.
