I am trying to find out if anyone remembers how the exchange of piasters before returning to the States went.
Our military family was in Saigon 1960 to 1962. My brother Tom said that we were getting 70 piasters to the dollar, but on the black market you could get 90 at that time.
When leaving I wondered if military personnel were able to exchange the piasters to military script or get American green backs.
Does anyone remember?
