Note: This paper begins on July 6, 1962, when Radio Hanoi first started broadcasting in English to the American military in South Vietnam and continues through until January 1972. It would be nice if this history could somehow be continued through the closing of the network in March 1973. Therefore, anyone who was stationed with AFVN or who has any information about those last 15 months is strongly urged to submit whatever they have (text or photos) to the Webmaster.
