American War Stories: Vietnam - Draw Down
About This Episode
"Draw Down" shows how the United States turns the war over to South Vietnam and begins returning soldiers, often to a disparaging public. The eventual reduction of forces until America’s departure in 1973 is followed by the fall of Saigon to the Communists in 1975.
American War Stories: Vietnam focuses on the personal stories of the men and women who served in the conflict, and offers insight into a war that continues to profoundly affect the lives of Vietnam veterans and their families -- as well as the rest of the nation -- today. The series demonstrates that it is never too late to honor the service and sacrifice of America’s Vietnam veterans.
