Forty years after the fall of Saigon, the Vietnam War is a distant memory to many young Americans. But to baby boomers growing up as America rebuilt war-ravaged Western Europe, saved South Korea from the North Korean Communists and sent men into outer space, Vietnam remains an open wound.

The CH-53 helicopter packed with 120 South Vietnamese and a handful of Americans lifted off a tennis court and into night sky, illuminated only by bursts of lightning northwest of Saigon and tracers from the machine-gun fire of enemy soldiers.

As Air Force Maj. John Guilmartin Jr. flew 90 miles to…

Helicopter Units and losses in the Vietnam War

CherriesWriter - Vietnam War website

One out of every ten Americans who served in Vietnam became a casualty.  As a result, 58,169 were killed and 304,000 wounded out of 2.29 million who served.  Although the percent of dead is similar to other wars, amputations or crippling wounds were 300% higher than in World War II.  75,000 Vietnam Veterans are severely disabled.

11MEDEVAC helicopters flew nearly 500,000 missions, airlifting 900,000 patients (nearly one-half were Americans).  The average lapse between being wounded and reaching a hospital was less than one hour, and as a result, less than one percent of those wounded died of their wounds within the first 24 hours.

The helicopter provided unprecedented mobility.  Without helicopters, it would have taken three times as many troops to secure the 800 mile border with Cambodia and Laos (the politicians thought the Geneva Conventions of 1954 and the Geneva Accords of 1962 would secure the border).

All these companies have a #MSA statement ! does yours ?

  • expedia.co.uk
  • uk.hotels.com
  • ebookers.com (UK)
  • trivago.co.uk
  • homeaway.co.uk
  • ownersdirect.co.uk
  • egencia.com (UK)
  • silverrailtech.com (UK)

actually its just a “non-exhaustive list of UK websites of Expedia Group” thus they all abide by expediagroups policies

MSA Statement

in addition a vendor code of conduct is imposed on their suppliers and vendors

Vendor Code of Conduct

with the threat that

non-compliance with the code can lead to Expedia Group ceasing to do business with a vendor or supplier

Whistleblowing

In addition the “Expedia Group maintains a twenty-four hour phone hotline for employees to raise concerns without fear of retaliation. Employees can confidentially report any concerns, which may include concerns relating to modern slavery and human trafficking.”

So next time you book a “cheap” holiday maybe think is it an ethical holiday from an ethical company ?
