Wow I thought the world forgot us kids. I was in Saigon from 1962-1965. My three sisters Ruby, Patsy and Cynthia where with me in the Kinh Do when they blew it up. If I am not mistaking the film was Walt Disney´s Lady and the tramp.
If any of you remember we are that Hawaiian family that lived in Gia Ding.
I still have my Pass Port and ran into a few of the kids when I was in the army.
My family, mom and the girls, left Saigon on the 15th of Feb. 1965 with the Westmoreland family. Rip and I caused a major problem in Gaum. We jumped the fence and took off across the street to watch some kids skateboarding. When the MP´s caught up with us everyone was waiting in the plane already. Mrs. Westmoreland and my mother promised to give us a good whipping once we got to Honolulu.
I don’t know if anyone remembers the Herz Family. There father was picked put by the Viet Cong and never came home. We were living on the next street behind them. If anyone knows about there son Herby (that’s what I called him) please let me know.
Well that is enough for now. I still feel a lot of pain about Vietnam. It left memories that I still can’t shake off.
