Vietnam Passage: Journeys from War To Peace

woman at the embassy gate

The helicopter carrying the last American soldiers in Vietnam lifts off the embassy roof, and a quagmire that cost more than 50,000 U.S. lives is finally over.

We are familiar with America’s view of the war and its path to healing, but what about Vietnam and the Vietnamese?

The war touched the lives of every man, woman and child in the country.

Here are six of their stories.
