The Fall of Saigon 1975 | The part of Air America in the rescue
Read it on my blog https://bit.ly/2PVRKS0
My deepest respect to all Vietnam Veterans. On April 29, 1975, the beleaguered South Vietnamese capital of Saigon witnessed the largest helicopter evacuation in history. Two United States Marine Corps helicopter squadrons, ten U.S. Air force helicopters, and Air America carried out 1,373 Americans and 5,595 people of other nationalities.
Although a good deal has been written over the past thirty years about the military's effort during the dramatic events of late April, the story of Air America – the airline secretly owned by the Central Intelligence Agency – remains largely untold. Time for justice has come.
