Nguyen Van Phong – Another Victim of the Vietnam War
This is Nguyen Thi Len and her seven-year-old son. This past summer, her older son died and became yet another victim of the Vietnam War. Friday, May 29th, marks the 40th anniversary of the day U.S troops left Vietnam after an eleven year active struggle that included massive bombing raids like Operation Rolling Thunder and Operation Linebacker, which does not include time the U.S. spent supporting the French occupation. Although it’s been 40 years, the Vietnam War still has an incredible impact on the people’s lives.
