Vietnam War, Lots of Misunderstandings from the American Perspective

Michael Do

There are truths that we do not want to reveal because they might hurt the feelings of some of our friends. The Vietnam War ended almost half a century ago but there have still been a lot of misunderstandings among our American friends, particularly the Vietnam Veterans. Our ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) soldiers had sacrificed during the war and still suffered the offense on social media, mostly due to the misinformation and the superiority complex of some racist American veterans.

We don’t know how much the American soldiers were taught about Vietnam’s culture and history before they were sent to Vietnam. We guess they only learned some basic things just enough to contact the people they rarely met. That’s why, for the past 50 years, there were too many misunderstandings among the American public, media, and even among many soldiers who fought in the Vietnam War.

Their common mistakes about Vietnam are:

The Vietnam War was between the United States and Vietnam. They ignored the major role of the South Vietnamese people, government, and soldiers.

The Vietnamese American Community to attend the Wreath Laying Ceremony of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation in Washington DC

On Friday June 10, 2022, the delegation of the Vietnamese American Community of the USA led by Ms TraMy Nguyen (President of the Board ofExecutives) and Thu Huong Nguyen (VP) attended the 15th Annuel Roll Call of Nations and Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Victims of Communism Memorial

The ceremony was held by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation at the corners of New Jersey and Massachusetts Ave. in Washington DC.

The following is quoted from the Press Release of the VOC Foundation

Ms. TraMy Nguyen and Ms. Thu Huong Nguyen

The VOC recognized Russian dissident Alexei Navalny as the recipient of the 2021 Dissident Human Rights Award. Mr. Navalny is a Russian opposition leader, politician, lawyer, and anti-corruption activist. He came to international prominence by organizing demonstrations, and running for office, to advocate reforms against corruption in Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Putin’s government. Navalny has been described as “the man Vladimir Putin fears most” by The Wall Street Journal. Navalny is a Russian Opposition Coordination Council member, the leader of the Russia of the Future party and the founder of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK).

Mr. Navalny was presented with the Dissident Human Rights Award virtually in January of 2021 but a formal ceremony was unable to be held at that time due to Covid-19 protocols. We are pleased to have Anna Veduta, Vice President of the Anti-Corruption Foundation, accept the award on behalf of Mr. Navalny at this year’s Roll Call of Nations Ceremony.

To  Congressman hay Senator…

Dear Congressman, (or Congresswoman)

The Effectiveness of Vietnamization

By Dr. Trong Q. Phan20190426_185438

Paper presented at “1969: Vietnamization and the Year of Transition in the Vietnam War” Conference.  Vietnam Center Texas Tech University April 25-27, 2019

Abstract

Vietnamization and diplomacy combined with military operation were the two pivotal strategies that President Nixon pursued to achieve his presidential campaign promise to end the Vietnam War. Although President Nixon achieved his goal with a peace treaty, the outcome severely impacted our international reputation in many fronts: the degradation of our national ideals on the world stage, loss of one of the most faithful friends and allies – the Republic of Vietnam, and leveraging advantages for Chinese influence in Southeast Asia.
