Last Days In Vietnam full documentary

If you have a couple of hours this weekend, I HIGHLY recommend that you watch this. This is unlike any other Vietnam War film out there. It covers the final days of the American presence in South Vietnam. Every story is more riveting than the last. Here is the full documentary.

One of the incredible tales is of the USS Kirk. It's a support ship with just one helipad. South Vietnamese Huey pilots would fly home, pick up their families, and fly out to sea. Seven of them landed on the Kirk. Because there was no room for more than one chopper, as soon as one landed and the people disembarked, they would push the chopper into the sea. Watch the documentary to see what happened when a Chinook tried to land on the small ship.
