US Vietnam War Servicemen R&R in Taipei + Links

Alexander of the amazing blog Synapticism sent this around Facebook. This is part one of a three part series on US Vietnam servicemen doing R and R in Taipei -- he described it as cringeworthy as you would expect. Mention of Taipei starts after the 6 min mark, but part two is the good part.

Quick Message of Gratitude for Michael:

Thanks for your blog - it is a fantastic compendium of Taiwan-related reference materials, and your added perspectives on the collections of articles and reports each time is very helpful.

I have learned tremendously about Taiwan - from politics to history - from patiently reading through the links in your blogs over time. Doing business here for a couple years now and in Asia for decades, it surprised me how little I actually knew about Taiwan before.

There is so much sensitivity built into the wording of everything written about Taiwan, it can be exhausting and frustrating to read from scratch while on guard for misleading bias. Your hints as to which perspectives can be found where are a great guide, especially for a busy professional in Taiwan. I generally sympathize with your views on most Taiwan subjects, so it's especially valuable for me.

Thank you.
