Not that there could be anyone in this country,

like it or not,

that does not know that we lost another of our

unarmed, peace loving, hero’s

on April 4, 1968.

However, just in case.

Reverend Martin Luther King Jr biography

I did not have the privilege of walking with

or

meeting this giant of the

‘Civil Right Movement’

or

even meet with any of the other marchers.

My heart was with them all

while my body was on a ship

making sure that they

and

all of the free world stayed free.

While it is true that

The Socialist Republic of Vietnam is still governed by the Communist Party.

Vietnam is a Socialist Communist Country.

South Vietnam : 

was backed by anti-communist countries and members of the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) which included the United States, South Korea, Australia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Thailand, Khmer Republic (later overthrown by Khmer Rouge), Kingdom of Laos and Republic of China (Taiwan).

 North Vietnam: 

was backed by the communist allies which included People’s Republic of China, Soviet Union, Pathet Lao (Laotian Communist insurgents), Khmer Rouge  (Cambodian Communist insurgents) and North Korea.
