A Moment of Remembrance, Reflection, & A Time to Look Ahead
Tarrant County, TX – Tarrant County Commissioners Court will be hosting a reception at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 21st, immediately preceding Commissioner’s Court. The reception will be followed by a special historic video and formal presentation of an important resolution to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the Fall of Saigon.
About the Fall of Saigon
On April 30, 1975, Saigon, the capitol of South Vietnam was captured. This event marked the end of the Vietnam War and the start of a transition period leading to the formal reunification of Vietnam into a socialist republic, governed by the Communist Party of Vietnam.
The fall of the city was preceded by the evacuation of almost all the American civilian and military personnel in Saigon, along with tens of thousands of South Vietnamese civilians associated with the southern regime. The evacuation culminated in Operation Frequent Wind, the largest helicopter evacuation in history.
