In April, 1975, during the final days of the Vietnam War, a group of military and civilians decided to evacuate as many of the Vietnamese War orphans as possible. Within three weeks they evacuated over 2,500 Vietnamese War orphans, in what many consider the greatest humanitarian effort of the late 20th century...The true story of these unsung heroes has never been told before. Written by William Bryant Doty.
A social distancing event - masks are required.
