Summary
"In 2015, Miki Nguyen appeared in an Oscar-nominated film called "Last Days in Vietnam", written and produced by Rory Kennedy, the youngest daughter of Robert F. Kennedy. In the film, Miki talks about his father and one CH-47 Chinook helicopter on April 29, 1975; after running low on fuel and carrying close to 20 passengers on board, including a 7-month old baby girl, Ba Van Nguyen, a Lt. Colonel of the South Vietnamese Air Force was forced to heroically ditch the helicopter at sea after saving everyone on board. Just like the film, this book is packed with real-life stories of bravery, courage, heroism, teamwork, compassion and other inspiring themes. Throughout the book, Miki delves far more deeply into that fateful day (April 29, 1975 -- Fall of Saigon). Aside from the dramatic Chinook ditch, Miki also relates stories of love, teamwork, and devotion that his parents shared for each other from the first day they met"--Amazon
