Vietnam memories


As a baby boomer, Vietnam still seems like only yesterday to me. Maybe that’s why I’m one of the few people in this newsroom of mostly younger people who still finds the images of a former Navy pilot standing at Truc Bach Lake in Hanoi, where he was shot down in the war, so stunning, and something to contemplate.

The photo was distributed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s office. Shown are Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC); Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN); and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).

McCain is urging stronger economic and military ties with Vietnam.
