American Troop Withdrawal from Vietnam
It was 37 years ago this month the final American soldiers completely withdrew from Vietnam. Bob Drury's new book Last Men Out: The True Story of America's Heroic Final Hours in Vietnam focuses on the final hours of eleven Marine Corps Security Guards who were the last to be flown off the roof of the U.S. embassy, just minutes before being captured or killed. Also joining the conversation is Des Moines native Dan Gannon, the Vietnam Veterans of America representative of the Iowa Commission of Veterans Affairs.
