On April 30, 1975, North Vietnamese forces took over Saigon, ending more than 20 years of the Vietnam War. The war claimed the lives of 58,282 U.S. soldiers with 1,666 still unaccounted for. Unlike veterans of World War II, many of whom came home to a hero's welcome, Vietnam veterans faced an American public largely opposed to the war. We'll talk with Bay Area Vietnam veterans about the war, their service and their lives after returning home.

Guests:

Tom Galvin, Vietnam veteran, U.S. Army

Dedan Kimathi Ji Jaga, Vietnam veteran, U.S. Marine Corps

Paul Cox, Vietnam veteran, U.S. Marine Corps and board member for Swords to Plowshares

Ron Perez, Vietnam veteran, U.S. Army
