Summary: An oral history of Huy Bui, a former United States Marine who is now an electronic technician for Ricoh Electronics. This interview focuses on his experiences as a first generation Vietnamese American who lived through the time of the Vietnam War and under communist rule for three years prior to fleeing to the United States in 1978 by boat. He speaks in detail about his life before and during the war and how things changed quickly as the communist took over control during 1975. He speaks out to the youth to remember and know about the events that occurred in Vietnam during the Vietnam War and to become activists in society to help free Vietnam and the youth who are struggling. He now resides in Midway City, California, in the heart of Little Saigon along with his wife and two children who are activists alongside him.
