A Reunion of Soldiers (A Vietnam War Reflection), 30 mins, DVD

The year 2005 was the 30th Anniversary of the Vietnam War. A reunion was held in New Orleans for alumni of the Thu-Duc Military Academy which provided 90 percent of the officers and generals in the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN). I attended this reunion and interviewed several officers to get their reflection of the Vietnam War, thirty years later. They discussed the politics involved, the American troops, the Hue and My Lai Massacres, the re-education camps, the quick surrender, and the loss of their land. I also interviewed two second-generation Asian-Americans who are currently serving in the US military. They discussed growing up in America and how they remember the soldiers who fought and lost.

This documentary is unique and rare because it provides insight to the war that is not commonly available in text books or other resources. Most only cover the war from the perspective of the US or the North. This documentary will close the gap and enable individuals and educators to understand and lecture the war from all sides.

“Your documentary was impressive, and I learned a great deal. My only question would

be the overwhelmingly positive views that the officers expressed about dealing with

American soldiers. In almost every work of combat literature or memoirs on the war -

with the notable exception of General Schwarzkopf - American military men frequently

express frustration and disappointment with the ARVN soldiers... “

                Professor of History

                Vanderbilt University


“Mr. Le, I did have a chance to review the program and found it very informative and

worthy of a showing here at the Missouri History Museum.”

“Your film is excellent and very rare. I have spoken at many venues, especially universities, and believe your work will add tremendously to the studies of the Vietnam War and the Vietnamese American story.”
