Just heard from Lana Noone, who runs the www.Vietnambabylift.org web site. She will be coordinating the Vietnam Operation Babylift 35th Anniversary Event on Saturday, April 24, beginning at 11:00 a.m. at the New Jersey Vietnam Era Educational Center in Holmdel.
Operation Babylift was the code name for the April 3-26, 1975, evacuation of thousands of orphans and other children from South Vietnam to the United States and other countries as Saigon was falling to the Vietnamese communists in the chaotic last days of the Vietnam War.
The Event includes speakers, a musical performance, an art and artifacts exhibit and a screening of Tammy Nguyen Lee’s award-winning documentary, Operation Babylift-The Lost Children of Vietnam . Several cast and crew members will be n attendance, and will take part in a Q and A and reception after the screening.
