The begining. Memories of Vietnam

My oldest memory of Vietnam was when I was still at school in England. It was called Indochina in those days. I can remember my history teacher bursting into a maths class, portable radio in his hand, crying out "Dien Bien Phu has fallen, Dien Bien Phu has fallen". This was of course in 1954.
I was 15 years old. It was the first event that pointed my way to Vietnam as the United States then became involved.

interesting pics....such a waste of a beautiful country and people's lives. And then we go and do it again...we never learn.

Thank you for sharing the pictures. It seems we do not have enough pictures from Vietnam during that period of turmoil. I longed to see the beauty of the placed that once called the Pearl of Far East.

I hope your site will inspire more people to submit pictures from that period.
