1968 Homecoming King and Queen

n the day I graduated from high school, my brother, Cpl. Stephen E. Austin, was killed in action, and Robert F. Kennedy died from an assassin's bullets. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated 2 months earlier, the Chicago Democratic riots were an example of the state of political affairs. The drug culture had deeply penetrated middle class America, further dividing families. 1968 was a defining year for the war in Vietnam as well as the United States. It was also the year we first orbited the moon.

Vietnam has become synonymous with the war to most Americans.

These are things to remember.(MÔNG)

After the fall of the French garrison at Dien Bien Phu in 1954, it was partitioned into North Viet Nam and South Viet Nam. The country was reunited in April 30, 1975 after the end of the Viet Nam War. Hanoi is the capital and Saigon the largest city.
