Colonel Traynor Recalls the Operation Babylift C-5A Galaxy Crash

Posted by in Adoptions, Operation Babylift Community, Vietnam War, Vietnamese-American Community

The rapid decompression was at 23,000 feet.
A side note: This isn’t terribly high in terms of being able to breath. At that altitude, a person would still have about half the oxygen present at sea level. Nevertheless, while mountain climbers have summited Everest (~29,000) without supplemental oxygen, to be sure, after 5 or 6 minutes, you and I, who haven’t trained to work in thin air, would be MUCH more comfortable and clear-headed breathing supplemental oxygen. And of course, the RD itself could cut useful thinking time in half.

The legacy of Gerald R. Ford transcends the succession of political trends and social revolutions, and will live forever in the bloodlines of rescued children who comprise the roots of a new American family tree that will grow and flower for untold generations to come. There is no price that can be put on a legacy that made life possible where otherwise death would have been inevitable.

Posted by in Veterans, Vietnam War, Vietnamese-American Community

I was born on September 24th, 1975 in the city of DaNang, Vietnam five months after the Fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese Communists. My daddy, a Republic Vietnam soldier, was taken prisoner by the Communists in May 1975 and held for seven years in a POW/Re-education camp.


Daring to Remember the Vietnam War

Posted by in National Defense, National Security, Veterans, Vietnam War

For American children to understand who they are and why they have they country they do; a country that was purchased through installments of blood, they must understand the conditions of war, and they must appreciate the character of the warriors who fought it. When they comprehend the adversity heaped upon servicemen who fought the Vietnam War, and why certain men and women chose to intervene and fight for America, even when politicians, the popular culture, the media, and their friends despised them for it, then they will understand what it means to be a hero.
