Fact of the Day: Vietnam American War

In Vietnam, the Vietnam War is sometimes referred to as the American War in the local language. However a longer title is Khang Chien Chong My which means the "Resistance War Against America".

  9. The Vietnam War was a terrible time in our country's history. I remember it only too well. Actually much of the 60s. I think about how bad things are now, so it's good to be reminded that the US has come through terrible times in the past. It gives me hope.
