  • America s war in Vietnam is over, but the scars of that war remain with many Asian Americans who served there. Lt. Lily Lee Adams nursed wounded soldiers and worked in triage for a year in Cu Chi. This tape chronicles her story and the reasons behind her decision to serve in a war fought against an Asian people. She tells of her time in Vietnam, what she saw, what she felt, her attitudes towards war, the racism Asian Americans suffered in Vietnam and the United States and the post traumatic stress disorder that she suffered after leaving Vietnam.
