During the pre-Vietnam war era (1955 –1965) the United States and several other countries sent advisory personnel to assist South Vietnam with its struggle against communism.
These advisers brought their families and dependents with them.
This site is about the life and times of those dependent children living in Saigon, long before Vietnam was to become a household word around the world.
Within these pages are chronicles of our fascinating childhoods as those dependent children … known today as Saigon Kids.
Here we share our experiences of a lifestyle that was often magical, privileged and painful … all at the same time.
And, the effects on our lives after we left Saigon … and, how our time in Saigon helped shape us into the person we are today.
After nearly half a century we reunite here, continuing to preserve the very special bond we made with each other so many years ago … in that far away place … Saigon.
