Saigon airlift remembered here

(Washington National Guard) Eight-hundred Vietnamese Americans from around Washington state came to Camp Murray yesterday for the 40th Anniversary of the journey from Vietnam to America after the fall of Saigon and the end of the Vietnam War.

In the summer of 1975, more than 500 Vietnamese refugees came to Washington through invitation from then Gov. Dan Evans and made a temporary residence at Camp Murray.

Former Sec. of State Ralph Munro, who was honored at the event played an instrumental role in bringing the refugees to Washington state, which is now home to more than 70,000 Vietnamese Americans.
