dc.description.abstract Nguyen Nga Dung was born on 12 October 1950 in Tuyen Quang, Vietnam. Her occupation here in the United States is as a realtor. She is Buddhist. She arrived in the United States on 1 December 1977. Nguyen Nga Dung tells story of the journey of her family when they migrated from Hanoi to South Vietnam in 1955. Nguyen Nga Dung remembers the Fall of Saigon vividly. She remembers prisoners escaping and having to return that day at night. There was a power outage so people were burning oil lamps. She remembers people wearing black with red strings on their upper arms and shooting guns in the air and raiding homes for American supplies like lights and cots. Nguyen Nga Dung tells reasons why she is afraid of the Communist regime. She shares her experiences while living under the Communist regime from 1975 to 1977. Nguyen Nga Dung narrates her escape by boat from Vietnam to Thailand, the story of her sister and her niece who were among 158 people on a boat. 156 people on that boat were never landed and died in the sea. Nguyen Nga Dung remembers her first days of her life in the USA.
