I can remember watching this very clip of Sandy Gall on British television when I was fourteen years of age. The news was always showing the Vietnam War and it looked as though it would never end. Then this shock news left me dazed.
I could not believe that the United States was giving way and the comunist NVA was entering Siagon. I could not concieve the notion that the United States would ever be in such a situation. It was the last days of the long Vietnam War, though it took some time for me to realise this.
