And then this photo passed by:
For those who don't recognize the picture, it is one of the last American evacuation helicopters on the roof of a building in Saigon as North Vietnamese soldiers enter the capital and South Vietnam starts to finally fall.
I remember vividly watching this on the TV news as a teen. Watching overloaded helo's being dumped from aircraft carrier decks to make room for the other choppers arriving. My Mother's side had relatives who had actively served recently.
Far, far stranger was three years ago my wife and I were welcome as tourists in Ho Chi Min City (formerly Saigon). In fact later that same year a cousin who had actively served had also returned as a tourist on his cruise. We did pass by that building and it was pointed out by the guide. Later our tour stopped at Independence Palace. There is at least one fully restored T-54 from the group that finally entered the grounds.
edit: checking my mind
