The answer varies depending on who you talk to, but most American travelers find the Vietnamese polite, friendly, and definitely curious about the advantages of living in a democratic, capitalistic society. Is this a new trend? Not really. In Mick Greene’s new book “The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot”, he describes a visit he made to Vietnam ten years ago with five fellow “Yankee Air Pirates” —a term the Vietnamese used to describe those who wreaked havoc from the sky during the Vietnam War (they call it “the American War” by the way, and they are extremely proud that they won it.)
The Vietnam War is part of American history like it or not. Reading “The Life and Adventures of an Old Bold Pilot” by Mick Greene is a good way to learn about it before it fades away in the rear view window of our society. How to buy it? It’s simple.
