On This Day In History The Last American Combat Troops Left Vietnam And American POWs Were Released

On this day in 1973 the last of America’s combat troops left South Vietnam and the Communists released American POWs held in North Vietnam.

It should be noted that when South Vietnam finally fell to the Communists in April of 1975, the North Vietnamese did not face American troops. They defeated the South Vietnamese.

For a look back at the Vietnam War, you can read my Counterterrorism magazine piece via the below link:
