Vietnam Withdrawal Anniversary
Vietnamese businessman Tony Lam, right, orders Vietnamese food at Vien Dong restaurant, a North Vietnamese style restaurant he founded with his wife in Westminster, Calif., Thursday, March 28, 2013. Lam was 36 on the day the last U.S. combat troops left Vietnam. He was a young husband and father, but most importantly, he was a businessman and U.S. contractor furnishing dehydrated rice to South Vietnamese troops. In 1992, Lam made history by becoming the first Vietnamese-American to elected to public office in the U.S. and he went on to serve on the Westminster City Council for 10 years.
