International Exposure - Vietnam
Excerpt from Weekend Edition, National Public Radio, 5/2/15:
"Back on the Danang beach where the U.S. troops first landed, things have changed, too. Recently an American band — from the USS Fort Worth, one of the Navy's newest warships — played a concert there during a goodwill visit to Vietnam. The young, selfie-snapping Vietnamese audience knew the lyrics to almost all the songs, but very little about the war. Like three-quarters of the population, they were born after it ended, and see the Americans as friends. And the sailors? The few that I was able to speak with were surprised the Vietnamese were so friendly, given the history".
