dc.description.abstract Mr. Nam Van Nguyen was born in Saigon, Vietnam in 1934. His education was cut short by being drafted to the military in 1954. He was Colonel in the South Vietnamese Armed Forces. He arrived in the United States in San Antonio in 1957. He then worked at a car wash and eventually bought his own Exxon station. He would then make waves in Houston by going up against a leader of the KKK who was trying to take jobs away from Vietnamese fishermen in the Galveston Bay area.
