Have a great time this weekend.The fall of Saigon has always been a bad point with me as well. A classic example of a political war.
Wish you could be there!
Ah, but I was so much older then,I'm younger than that now...Thank you for reminding us.
:) Thank you for reading.
That's 5 months of my life I will never forget. Talega, Camp Pendelton relocation camp. 200 Marines and 65,000 Vietnamese.
I left Saigon on the 25th and took a job at MCAS El Toro, but lived in San Clemente and visited the relocation camp often. Later on I quit the government and drove a cab there and used to drop off Marines at what we called the back gate to Talega as it was cheaper than going through Mateo.
