Hi my name is Hong. I was in Saigon that fateful day in 1975. I was busy all day going around on my motorbike trying to help friends who either had worked for the South Vietnamese gov't or the Americans. I saw a lot dead bodies on the streets. I don't know how they died. Late in the afternoon a truck carrying Viet Cong came into my neighborhood. Someone had given out red armbands and Viet Cong flags. A lot of people stood by the street and cheered the Viet Cong kissing their ass. But not my family.I tell you now if you live under Communist you will not like it.
Thanks and I spent 8 years there. If you click on the FNC link above, some of the links that show up are from my NamSouth site and there is a lot about your country at Memories Of The Republic Of South Vietnam that you might enjoy. Where do you live now?
I live in Dallas, Texas.
As soon as I hit reply, I glanced at your pen name and realized that you must live in Dallas. :)
