Summary
Kenneth Moorefield was an adviser to the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) in 1967 and 1968, and then returned to Vietnam as an assistant to the ambassador from 1973 until the end of the war. He discusses the challenges faced by the Americans in Saigon after the Paris Agreement was signed, but aggression from North Vietnam continued. Among these was the rampant corruption among the South Vietnamese political structures and the effects of Watergate on the political climate in the United States. Mr. Moorefield details the catastrophic withdrawal of the South Vietnamese army and civilians from the country's central region, and the days before the evacuation of Saigon. He goes into great detail of the chaos of the evacuation and how he tried to help Vietnamese civilians who wanted to leave, and describes the scene as one of the last Americans to leave the Saigon embassy.
