(Vietnam: A Television History series, Part 13)
In many respects Vietnam remains the "war that will not go away." America inherited more than 500,000 Asian refugees, 2.5 million veterans, and questions still to be answered. Veterans issues include delayed stress syndrome and the effects of Agent Orange. The military may never regain its World War II popularity. The boat people demonstrate that a portion of the Vietnamese were so unable to relate to the victors that they will risk their lives to escape. There is also the destructive effect of the 30 year war on that once beautiful land itself.
