Saigon Memories

Dad was one of the international engineers working for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Vietnam. He worked there for quite some time and was initially assigned to Camp Cu Chi, the base camp of the 25th Infantry Division (underneath of which were later discovered tunnels built by the VCs). Saigon seemed oblivious to the war, its streets teeming with activity from women rushing about in Áo Dàis riding scooters with baguettes tucked under their arms, street vendors selling exotic fruits to the radios blasting the latest American and French pop hits.
