When Saigon fell into Communist hands on 30/4/1975, Mum thrice refused to have our family evacuated, a privilege reserved for high-ranking officers through the American Advisory Group. Dad (a Signal Corps Lieutenant Colonel) battled ’till the last minute at Headquarters in Saigon. As a result he was sent to a series of “re-education camps”, which were in fact labour camps, from the North to the South for ten years.
Soon Saigon’s face was changed dramatically. But wait there’s more!

Ho Chi Minh ‘planted’
The communist people,
To reap a return in hundred years.
He must see they are now supplanted
By the capitalist people,
To reap a return in zillion years!
*** The late ‘great’ Ho Chi Minh once ‘wisely’ said:
“To reap a return in ten years, plant trees. To reap a return in hundred years, ‘plant’ people.”
