You may not, but many of the lessons remain unlearned.

I might actually throw down some coin and buy and actual copy.

THE LAST DAYS OF VIET NAM is mainly about the evacuation process, or lack thereof, under the leadership. or lack thereof , of Graham Martin, the Ambassador to Viet Nam. It can still be seen today on the interenet. Click through the prompts to the video. A little over an hour and a half long. Stupendous production.
Frank Snepp, the former CIA chief in Viet Nam is one of the many people interviewed.
He also wrote the book DECENT INTERVAL, a great book about the Viet Nam debacle. If you read it, you'll be one pissed off puppy!
I believe the government sued Snepp and finally were able to lay claim to all of the royalties that he had collected from the book.
This is must see viewing, whether you were there or not. We left hundreds of thousands of our people behind, because of political ineptitude and just not giving a damn about people because, after all, they were just "slopes", right??!!?
