Book Discussion on A Sense of Duty Only a couple of days before the fall of Saigon on April 30, 1975, Quang Pham, his mother, and siblings were driven out of Saigon on a motor scooter by their father, a South Vietnamese pilot helping the American forces during the Vietnam War. Quang’s father stayed behind, was captured by the Viet Cong, and placed in a prisoner-of-war camp for ten years while Quang and the rest of his family fled the country, stopping at the Fort Chaffee refugee camp in Little Rock before eventually settling in California. The author went on to study at UCLA, joined the U.S. Marines as a helicopter pilot and fought in the first Gulf War as well as in Somalia. Mr. Pham tells his story in A Sense of Duty: My Father, My American Journey. close
