NPR's Rob Gifford reports from Ho Chi Minh City about Vietnamese ceremonies marking the end of the war. 25 years ago today, North Vietnamese Communist troops entered the former city of Saigon, and American forces left in defeat. Although it was a day for the old guard to trumpet its victory over the U.S., younger Vietnamese expressed much more positive attitudes about America. Half Vietnam's population was born after the war's end.
