Last Woman Out!

During the withdrawal of American staff and troops from Vietnam and the subsequent evacuation of Saigon City. We were assigned as cover support to the evacuating American Embassy and Ambassador.
Just before take off I happened to take this picture.
The smile on this Vietnamese woman's face clutching her two small children shows relief and the hopes of a future.

When evacuating Vietnamese in the 70's my girlfirend and took charge of a young woman coming to California. We go her apartment and set her up. It was a very neat experience. The young lady did not keep in touch with us much to our disappointment.
