American Embassy Saigon Before The Fall of Saigon in 1975
Our website is intended to allow interested people to understand what serving our country was like at the American Embassy, Saigon, Republic of Vietnam. Our group consists of Marine Security Guards, who are responsible for the security and welfare of personnel and property at United States of America foreign missions throughout the world, civilian employees who served their country in Saigon in various capacities, Marines of Company "E" who provided perimeter security, and Army, Navy and Air Force servicemen who were assigned to the Embassy in various positions.
The picture below has too much history to it to put it into one of the photo albums. It is of Tim French holding a remnant of the front door of the old American Embassy in Saigon. The Viet Cong attacked the Embassy in 1968 during the Tet Offensive and broke down the front door. Tim's father, the Administrative Officer in Saigon at the time, had a panel of the door with the American Embassy seal framed, and Tim now has it at his apartment in Bangkok, Thailand.
