The Hmong - Unsung Heroes During The Vietnam War And Their Struggles To This Day

I stumbled upon a web site that was written by Jeff Lindsay, about a group of people that most Americans have never heard of....The Hmongs. Most of the adults were born in Laos and grew up as poor farmers from the hilltops of northern Laos, before they were recruited to fight a bloody secret war for the United States against powerful Communist forces. The Hmong were instrumental in saving the lives of many U.S. soldiers fighting during the Vietnam War. There are approximately 180,000 Hmong living in the U.S. Jeff Lindsay's web site tells the story of the Hmong people from the days of the Vietnam War to present time. A story that few people know about. Here is a link to Jeff Lindsay's web site:
