The SS Mayaguez Incident of 1975 on VBC Happy Hour
The little-known SS Mayaguez Incident of 1975 was the last act of the Vietnam War. Coming two weeks after the Fall of Saigon, the armed conflict between the US military and Cambodian Khmer Rouge naval forces resulted in the last US casualties of the war. The names of these 41 casualties appear at the very end of the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC–“The Wall”–which lists KIA in chronological order, beginning in 1959. Join us as we partner with the Koh Tang/Mayaguez Veterans Organization to hear their story.
