frankcqb As we approach the 40th anniversary marking the fall of Saigon this April, this timely release serves as a reminder and offers an unparalleled insight into the finals days of U.S. involvement in Vietnam.
Following a brief introduction of the 1973 Paris Peace Accord & Nixon's resignation the following year, we are thrown right into April 1975 where the Communists advance into Saigon is imminent. The official evacuation order had not been issued but thanks to the initiative & compassion of some U.S. embassy & service personal, a secret covert ops had begun to ferry valued South Vietnamese counterparts & their family members out of the country. The second half takes us into U.S. embassy compound & U.S. ships focusing on events of April 29, 1975 amidst the chaos of the frantic final evacuations.
Current day interviews of those on the ground both U.S. & Vietnamese; together with expertly combined news footage reveals precious & at times interesting information that you won't read about in any history books or reporting. For instance, the coded official evacuation order was Bing Crosby's "I'm dreaming of a White Christmas" over American Radio Saigon airwaves. And it took a few U.S. Marines eight hours to finished burning 1 million USD cash stored in the embassy prior to withdrawal.
This is documentary film making at its best. Not only does it highlight the exceptional efforts of those Americans who were still making last ditched attempts at getting as many South Vietnamese out as possible but also about the bravery of the South Vietnamese people in the face of uncertainty & adversity as well as their plight at the prospect of losing their country & all that they own.
'Last Days in Vietnam' is without doubt a riveting watch but at times heart-breaking as well.

jennifermorrowfitness We were blessed to get to celebrate our marriage with our friends and family in CA this weekend, in a building that holds a ton of meaning for my family. Here we are looking up at my Dad's Vietnam war uniform and my Grandpa's WW2 uniform. They are proudly displayed in the Veterans Hall in Danville, CA and it was so meaningful to hold this special event in a place that has this family memorabilia! 2w

tmb913 Found this Vietnam Service ribbon on the beach as I was running in Daytona. Wonder what its story is? So I post it as a thank you for all who served in that Era like my Dad in the 1st Cav where 49 years ago he was somewhere in the jungle around or in An Khe. I also post in support of our current warriors out getting it done. Thank You. #vietnamvets #iadrang #1staircalvary #11thairassault #defensearmour #alphadefenseco #militaryvets # wounded warriors #thosethatgaveall 4w

derailedtrainofthought Once the centre of the country's booming steel industry and known as the City of the Century, Gary, Indiana now lies in ruins and serves as a dark reminder as to what happens when American companies pull the plug and outsource jobs. I took these photos in Gary earlier this year. The urban decay, lack of commerce and overall sense of hopelessness was almost overwhelming. #VietnamVets #UrbanDecay #Ghosttown #Gary #Indiana #MichaelJackson #Jackson5 #FreddieGibbs #GlennRobinson #InstaTravel #IGTravel #travelgram #Wanderlust 4mon
