A U.S. Navy vessel sails up the Saigon River and docks in what is now Ho Chi Minh City, marking the first visit of a U.S. warship since the end of the Vietnam War. Many see the event as symbolic of a new era of stronger relations between the United States and Vietnam. Hear NPR's Bob Edwards and NPR's Michael Sullivan.
