If you are my age (48), the picture above is one you well remember of the last helicopter to leave the US Embassy in Saigon. Well today at lunch, one of my colleagues, Ed Christ, told me he searched Youtube for some footage and then showed it to his students. Loving the idea I found the same great news footage of a reporter was there at the end. It shows the chaotic scenes of downtown Saigon and then the reporters climbing the walls of the US Embassy and the Marine helicopter coming to rescue them. What a great way to make one's e-textbook come alive.
