David Lamb covered the Vietnam War as a young reporter for United Press International, 1968-1970, and later the fall of Saigon. On April 26th, 1975, he happily left Vietnam on one of the last transport planes out of the country as North Vietnamese forces rolled into Saigon. When he returned 20 years later to open The Los Angeles Times South East Asia bureau in Hanoi, he found that the people and the country of Vietnam touched him in ways he never expected.
