Day of rebirth, sorrow revisited By Florangela Davila Seattle Times staff reporter It's been 30 years since Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" echoed over the Saigon airwaves, signaling the U.S. evacuation of the besieged capital. Throngs of desperate South Vietnamese crowded the U.S. Embassy and lunged at departing Army helicopters fleeing the advancing communist troops. That same day, April 30, 1975, Phi Long Dang watched his father pull out a pistol and threaten to kill himself rather than live under a communist regime. What followed for Dang and his family was an odyssey shared by tens of thousands of South Vietnamese who found new lives in the United States. Thirty years ago tomorrow, South Vietnam, the place of Dang's birth, surrendered to North Vietnam. The day ? called Thang Tu Den, or "black April," by many ? is observed each year by Vietnamese refugees. How it's remembered underscores an ideological as much as a generational gap within the community. The date haunts many older Vietnamese, those who witnessed the war or spent years as political prisoners of the North Vietnamese. "We consider April 30 like our Holocaust day," says Pham Huy Sanh, 69, a retired South Vietnamese Army colonel who lives in Kent. "It's a day of sorrow for all the people we left behind." Sanh and others will attend a candlelight vigil tonight to mourn the loss of their country. They will also rally tomorrow to condemn communism. But younger Vietnamese Americans have planned a rally tomorrow to salute the arrival of Vietnamese in Washington 30 years ago, to thank the state for welcoming them and to recognize their own successes. "We want to make April 30th a day that doesn't cast a shadow, that's not about bitterness," says Thao Tran, 29, who works as a business-development officer in Rainier Valley. "We want to acknowledge our past, but acknowledge how far we've come." Local Vietnamese of both generations agree the 30-year mark should be acknowledged. They're no longer newcomers struggling to start over in a strange country, speaking a new language, seeking employment, raising families. Their community, they say, has come into its own, regardless of a split over issues like the war. Dang, now 40 and enjoying a middle-class life in Kent, bridges both generations. He can't help but respect those who have suffered under communism and those who have only the faintest memory of Vietnam. For 30 years, he listened to his father denounce communism, prohibiting the family from returning to the country for a visit. Even when his father neared death, he refused to return to the land of his birth. But like most Vietnamese refugees here, Dang has lived most of his life in this country. And he's hoping the next generation, including his young daughter, values its Vietnamese roots. "I told her I'd pay her $5 for every Vietnamese word she learns," Dang says about 8-year-old Sabrina Phi-Khanh, who is Vietnamese-Laotian-American. His payout thus far? "Twenty bucks," he laughs. Coded message By the time the communist tanks rolled into Saigon that April day, the United States had a plan to evacuate some South Vietnamese citizens along with U.S. personnel. The signal for the start of the evacuation was a coded message on U.S. Armed Forces Radio that included the repeated playing of "White Christmas." "Every time I hear the song, it makes me really sad," says Tam Nguyen, owner of Saigon Bistro in Seattle. Then-Gov. Dan Evans agreed Washington would accept 500 Vietnamese evacuated at the end of the war. "We ended up taking about 1,000," says Jeff Kibler, who worked at the U.S. Embassy in Saigon and helped with the evacuation. He now supervises the state's Refugee and Immigrant Program. During the next three decades, two more waves of refugees resettled in the United States, now home to 1.2 million Vietnamese and Vietnamese Americans. The greater Seattle Vietnamese community numbers 40,000, the sixth-largest regional population in the country. Leaving home Last Sunday, Dang sat in the Ben Le cafe in Rainier Valley. He had spent that morning at the nearby Thanh That Cao Dai temple, where he donned a white ao dai, or robe, and prayed. The temple anchors him to the larger Vietnamese community, and it especially binds him to the memory of his father, who was equally passionate about religion and politics. "Every New Year and every April 30, he'd make us sing all these Vietnamese songs," Dang says over coffee. Recalls Dang's brother Phi Van: "You know how some dads take their kids to the movies to spend time with them? My dad would take us to political events." Dang was 10 when President Duong Van Minh surrendered to the North Vietnamese. His father, then a local councilman, called to his eldest son, threatening to commit suicide. Dang and his family lived in South Vietnam's Ca Mau province, in a narrow house that also held a family-run bookstore. He'd cross the street to ring the bells at the Roman Catholic church and swam in a nearby river. He'd climb on his roof and collect pieces of shrapnel that rained down during the war. His mother, a nurse, persuaded her husband to put down his gun. One of her relatives was a communist official, a fact that might have saved his father's life, given his nationalist-party leanings. But nonetheless, his father spent the next three years detained in communist "re-education" camp. The Dang family fled Vietnam in 1979, in a patrol boat packed with 30 other people. A Spokane church sponsored the family's resettlement. They arrived April 23. "Cold, empty, spread out," Dang recalls about his new home. During the summers, both parents and all five children picked berries in Oregon. His father assembled electronics; his mother cooked in Chinese restaurants. The parents' mantra to their children: You need to go to school. You need to be somebody. "When my parents came to this country, they had no idea what we could accomplish," Dang says. Eventually his parents opened an Asian grocery and watched Dang graduate from high school and enroll in college. After two years, Dang dropped out because of his family's financial troubles. The family lost its store. Money had run out and Dang took a job in an Alaska fish cannery, which turned into a 17-year-career, including stints as a manager. Thirty years after the war, Saigon is called Ho Chi Minh City and diplomatic relations between the United States and Vietnam have been normalized. There's a U.S.-Vietnam trade agreement. U.S. Navy ships have docked in Vietnam's ports. Last December, United Airlines became the first U.S. airline in 30 years to offer direct service to the country. Visits to Vietnam by former refugees have reunited families or have introduced them to the country of their parents. "The sheer commercialism was unbelievable," says Dawn-Thanh Nguyen, 34, of Seattle, who visited in 2003. Fancy store fronts. Sweet fruits that tasted like moist cakes. Buying gingered tofu by running out onto a hotel balcony and hollering to a woman on the street below. But the decision to make the trip, just like the war or current Vietnamese politics, divides the community. "There's still a strong anti-communist sentiment," said Linda Vo, a professor of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Irvine. "People don't want it known that they've visited or have any business relationship with the country because that might mean you support the Vietnamese government." For example, when three artists from Vietnam visited Seattle earlier this year, they earned the disdain of some local Vietnamese who called for protests. The rift is acutely visible now as the community plans ways to mark tomorrow. "I can understand how one group can be bitter and one group can be carefree. But at the end of the day, they're all Vietnamese," says Tam Nguyen, the local restaurateur. Phi Long Dang admires the economic progress Vietnam has made and says he hasn't had time to visit the country, a trip he begged his father to make when he was diagnosed with cancer. He offered to pay, but his father refused. Kim Dang died two years ago. So rather than accepting his father's politics, Phi Long embraces his father's faith and tries not to work on Sundays so he can attend temple. "The older you get, the more you go back to your roots. When I come here, I feel like the whole community supports me," he says about the Cao Dai temple. Dang doesn't plan to attend either anniversary event tomorrow, but not for political reasons. He plans to work at his new job, selling cars at an automobile dealership, Toyota of Seattle. Seattle Times researcher Gene Balk contributed to this report.

Vietnamese groups divided over how to remember past By Tan Vinh Seattle Times staff reporter The crowd of 300 gathered on the grand, black-and-white mosaic floor of Union Station yesterday morning, telling stories of where they were 30 years ago when South Vietnam fell to the North Vietnamese communist regime. Then Vietnamese and Vietnamese Americans headed outside to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the fall of Saigon. What happened next underscored the generation gap and the emotional complexities of the region's Vietnamese community. At one corner of the street, a group of mostly young Vietnamese Americans marched to City Hall in a symbolic gesture to thank the state for accepting them in their new homeland. Across the street, a group of mostly Vietnamese retirees in their old military uniforms marched toward "Little Saigon" in the Chinatown International District, chanting in Vietnamese, "Down with communism!" and "Freedom for Vietnam!" "We wanted to have a unified event," said Thao Tran, 29, a member of the Unity of Vietnamese Americans Committee, a group of mostly young business and community leaders. "Unfortunately, we could not settle our program differences." Trong Tang helped organize the Little Saigon march with former military men. "We encourage the young generation to get involved in the community, but they should have checked with the older generation," he said. "They should show respect to the elders." The issue has been a source of tension and an embarrassment to some Vietnamese who didn't want controversy to overshadow the anniversary. Vietnamese community and business leaders said representatives from both events met as early as February to settle their differences. But the older group, made up of many former prisoners of war, was adamant about setting the tone and taking the lead, according to community leaders who attended the meetings. The group, called the Republic of South Vietnam Armed Forces Veterans' Confederation of Washington State, believed the anniversary should be a day to mourn and to condemn communism for human-rights abuses. Sanh Pham, 69, a retired Vietnamese army colonel, found the focus of the younger generation ? thanking the U.S. government and acknowledging the accomplishments of refugees ? too upbeat for what he considers the darkest day in South Vietnam history. Yesterday, both sides downplayed the controversy. "We have an incredibly diverse community. I'm surprised there are only two separate events," said Chris Brownlee, 30, of Seattle, who helped organize the march toward City Hall. At yesterday morning's Union Station gathering, Vietnamese and Vietnamese Americans spoke of their plight in the war-torn country and of adjusting in the United States. Then came the marches. A group of at least 150 headed toward City Hall to hear Mayor Greg Nickels, U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Seattle, and other dignitaries speak about the contribution Vietnamese have made to the area in the past 30 years. Nickels said he was aware of the two conflicting views but said that comes with having a diversity of 40,000 Vietnamese and Vietnamese Americans in the Seattle area, one of the largest concentrations in the country. This should be a day of healing, said the mayor, "a day we can look forward with hope." In the Chinatown International District, the group of veterans lined up with their families standing in one corner dressed in black. The former soldiers took turns condemning the communist regime for human-rights abuse and restricting free speech. They then marched around Vietnamese storefronts, waving the flag of the former Republic of Vietnam. Casey Bui, 32, who helped organize the City Hall march, said he was not offended that the veterans held a separate march. He attended a candlelight vigil the former military men held the night before. "We are all part of one Vietnamese community," he said.

1900.4830 Article SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER It's a fateful day for Vietnamese: 30 years since Saigon's fall. Includes stories and thoughts about the future for Vietnamese in the United State. Saturday, April 30, 2005 By ATHIMA CHANSANCHAI SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER REPORTER Seattle actress Khanh Doan wasn't yet born when the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon fell at the hands of the North Vietnamese army 30 years ago today, signaling the end of nearly three decades of conflict in the war-torn country. Her father, a South Vietnamese infantryman, was placed in a re-education camp. She didn't meet him until she was 8 years old. Not until she joined the cast of the 5th Avenue Theatre's "Miss Saigon" did her emotions about the anniversary surface. "To my parents, the fall of Saigon was the start of a lot of hardship," she said. Since the end of World War II, the small Southeast Asian country had been beset by civil war, division in 1954, and both communist and Western -- French and U.S. -- forces throwing military might into campaigns that cost the lives of nearly 60,000 American soldiers and an estimated 3 million Vietnamese. The day the United States pulled out of its embassy in Saigon -- April 30, 1975 -- was the end of one life and the beginning of an exodus. Scenes from those last days made their way onto television screens halfway around the world: families fleeing in anything with wheels or rudders, parents tearfully pushing their children into the arms of strangers, fire in the streets and a desperate crowd clambering over embassy walls. Doan and others in the Seattle area's Vietnamese American community -- the third-largest in the country at more than 80,000 -- reflected on the anniversary with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Among their voices: a former naval officer who spent three years in prison after Saigon fell, a housewife who saw the disintegration of her country, a real estate agent who hopes other Vietnamese Americans build on their parents' sacrifices, and a high school girl born in Vietnam long after the communist takeover. Khanh Doan, 29, actress, an ensemble cast member in "Miss Saigon" The only full Vietnamese member of the 5th Avenue Theatre's "Miss Saigon" cast, Doan moved to Seattle about a year and a half ago. She wasn't even born when her father, a South Vietnamese infantryman, was placed in a re-education camp. She was 8 when she met her father, who found her and her mother in San Diego after years of imprisonment and searching. "I had a lot of prejudices about the show before I did it. But the director, David Bennett, really wanted to tell the story. He did a lot of research and had people talk to us, had us watch videos. It was really emotional for me. It brought up things I hadn't felt, especially thinking about my mom and what my parents went through. It was the first time it was in my face. I cried every day. "They don't think about going back to Vietnam. They feel like they'd be strangers there, going back as tourists. "Before the show, I never thought about the anniversary. To my parents, the fall of Saigon was the start of a lot of hardship. "Doing this show makes you remember this is based in history and it makes you want to portray the characters with as much truth and honesty as you can. "Vietnam is always associated with the war. Vietnam equals war. I don't want to stop people from talking about the war, but I want there to be other things. We should nurture our talents to create new material." Kim Pham, 54, publisher and editor- in-chief of Nguoi Viet, weekly Northwest Vietnamese newspapers Pham came to Seattle in 1979 after spending three years in jail because he was a naval press officer for South Vietnam. "The reason we are refugees is because we escaped and we want them to change, too, to have a better life. I feel like one of the songs in 'Miss Saigon': We don't forget the past, but we need to move on. "But with my generation, it's very difficult to tell them to move on. It's a very sensitive and emotional thing. There was pain and panic. It was very difficult to withdraw. "We can't stay here and wish someday that the communists will fall down. But there are so many factions here. We need to be like a family when they have a guest -- respect the family and don't fight with other guests." Tiffany Bui, 40, Bothell housewife, mother of three Bui is about the same age her widowed mother was when she fled from Vietnam with 11 children in tow. "The 'fall of Saigon' for me came way before April 30, 1975. It came when as a child of 10 in South Vietnam in '75, I helped my mother feed and take care of people fleeing the war from the North. We didn't have much but it was more than they had, and Mother never could say no to people in need. I remember humongous pots of soups and pots and pots of rice. We even housed a famous Vietnamese movie star. "It came when my second-oldest brother came through the front door and collapsed in my arms, scratched up and exhausted. He had lost most of his platoon and barely made it out of the jungle with his life with the help of strangers and a tart, bitter fruit that he still had in his hand. I witnessed him tell his friend's sister that her brother was dead. Her cries haunted me for years. "There's a legend in my family that an old uncle had seen a vision of a yellow star and a red star fighting and that the red one gobbled up the yellow one. "We left on a fishing boat and then went onto a barge. They were all scared and terrified. I remember there were a lot of well-dressed city folk with lots of luggage. All my mom grabbed were clothes, family china we still have, some of my dad's mementos, a stamp collection, pictures and Vietnamese money. On the big international boats, people would climb on each other in mobs. The sides broke and people fell over into the water. "To me, what I went through that day -- as harried as it was for a child of 10 -- was a walk in the park compared to what others went through. As a parent now, I can't imagine sending my child with total strangers. I can't say that day really scarred my soul. For a good number of us, it meant a bump up in our economic status. It gave us opportunities we wouldn't have if we had stayed. It was a blessing in disguise, which sounds horrible to say because so many lives were totally ruined." Casey Bui, 32, real estate agent, Tiffany Bui's brother-in-law and member of the Unity of Vietnamese Americans Committee Born just outside of Saigon, Bui was the second-youngest of 11 children. Before his family left on a military plane a couple of days after Saigon fell, his eldest brother was captured by North Vietnamese troops. The family settled in Oregon, with his father, a South Vietnamese army officer, starting over as a custodian at a local high school to support his children. "It's refreshing for me to find Vietnamese Americans my age who feel as passionately as I do about our community and not wanting to forget some of the sacrifices our parents and grandparents have made, and not squandering opportunities we've had. "As much hardship and obstacles we all have in our lives, this is still a country people literally died to get into. "If I don't give back to my community with that privilege, part of me feels that I have not taken advantage of the blessings I've been given." Thanh Vo, singer and Cingular Wireless systems analyst A budding singer when she fled Vietnam in 1982, Vo built a new fan base in Seattle after she arrived in 1988. (She lived in the Philippines and California in-between.) Her latest CD, "Khi Xa Sai Gon," or "After Saigon," was released for this anniversary. "I actually find myself dealing with a mixed set of emotions: both pride and disappointment. Pride that heroes were made by the sacrifice to liberate a country. Disappointment in the situation that made the sacrifice necessary. "I will never forget the arrival of the communists and the difficult years that followed. "With this pain in my heart, no matter what people keep saying about the country being better now, I still do not believe it. "I try to use my feelings to propel myself forward. The past can be both a driving force or an anchor." Chris and Kelly Brownlee, both 30 Vietnamese adoptees who came to the United States through Operation Babylift, they met at the 25th fall of Saigon anniversary in Baltimore in 2000, where the seeds of a cross-country romance for Bostonian Chris and Seattleite Kelly were first sown. They have a daughter, Lily, who is 17 months old. Chris: "It is a sad day, but in this time of passing and mourning we should take a look at how much our community has been able to accomplish. We should not look at how much we've lost and really cherish how much we've done. "One day out of the year, we can put our differences aside. This is a really important day for all of us to be equally represented and find our own collective voice." Thuc Chi Nguyen, 15, sophomore at Evergreen High School Thuc Chi was born in 1989 in Ban Me Thuot, southern Vietnam. She left Vietnam with her family in 1994 and settled in Seattle. Her father was a lieutenant during the war. "The first thing I think about when I think about the fall of Saigon is that it is the reason I am here today in America. Because Vietnam is under a communist government, my parents wanted our family to come over here for more opportunities." IF YOU GO The Fall of Saigon 2005: A Day of Remembrance and Hope will be held today. It starts at 11 a.m. with a gathering at Seattle's Union Station, 401 S. Jackson St., featuring Vietnamese refugees, war veterans and representatives from the Vietnamese American community. They will march to City Hall and hold a rally at 12:30 p.m. P-I reporter Athima Chansanchai can be reached at 206-448-8041 or ? 1998-2005 Seattle Post-Intelligencer A Fateful Day for Vietnamese Chansanchai, Athima 04/30/2005 Seattle Post Inteligencer
