Saigon's Fall @ 40: Vietnam-Memories...Yours, Your Family's, Your Friends'...on the Air [& 5 Latest Podcasts]

     The end of April will mark the 40th Anniversary of the fall of Saigon.

     Regardless of your sense of the wisdom of our SEAsian War, we might all agree that for a variety of reasons Vietnam veterans were and continue to be treated shabbily by the country that sent 58,000 of their sisters and brothers to slaughter. 

     Pols worship vets until the moment they're elected, then relegate them to memory's gutter. The network that brings you PASSIONATE JUSTICE, Star Com, will recall their stories, the women and men who lived and died there, lived there and returned here.

     We would like to present memories from you and from those you know who lived Vietnam, there, in-country, and from those of you and from those whom you know, to whom they returned. 

          . You

          . Your parent, child, niece, nephew, sib, friend, colleague

          . Your wife

          . Your husband

          . A grandparent

          . An aunt or an uncle

          . A school mate, a friend

     If you or they have a Vietnam Memory you would share with us for broadcast, whether under the person's name or anonymously, please send it in a paragraph or as a brief essay, indicating your home-state, to


  (and please copy me at      

     Thanks very much!

I hope you can get them to talk. Depending on who made it over, there are a few Vietnam vets here.

My favorite peasants were the

Central Highland - Mountain

People. Montagnards were not

fitting in with economy money

greedy people. Trees were sacred.

If GI gave them a $20.00 they's

use to kindle coal for bamboo

soup, ir chicken noodle and rice.


Jump out oh helicopter and sink

in muddy bog up to the thighs. Boots

get Stuck in mud and make sucking noise.

To see a sucking chest-lung wound is sad.

The hole in GI's chest gurgles and spits blood.

Ya get Agent Orange CROTCH-ROT in groin too.

Free? Free Jungle Fatigues get CAKED with MUD!

Britches stink and Ya might stay in BUSH ( jungle )

for 9--days. Chams were poorest of poor Cambodian.

They fled Cambodia. Khmers? Maybe simulate? TEA

PARTY? and go to Baptist School and Be a Cook? no



in chef


on on on

Thanks, jmac!

I get back later too...

I forgot to admit? I loved

to views Women bathe in

the creek, and married ones

walked barefoot and topless.

The men wore loin cloths.

The hunted for monkeys.

They served me calming tea.

I thank them for being docs.

I best visit Neighbor and tell

Knock knock jokes and stay

out of mischief. It pretty day.

No bombs, napalm, and

niosy grass hoppers in

skies with GI's off to

die for the BIG LIES
