The Republic of Vietnam Historical Society (RVNHS) is a nonprofit historical group based in California. Our aim is to preserve and study the history of the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam), 1955-1975. RVNHS is affiliated with The Museum of History of the Republic of Vietnam Armed Forces in Westminster, California. This blog is routinely updated with new acquisitions to the RVNHS Archive.

We wanted to share this link to a recent Los Angeles Times article on uncovering the family histories and the lives of those who were affected by Black April in 1975. Among those interviewed is Philip Tran who has been undertaking great research to trace the history of his father's life, Colonel Tran Van Hai. The Republic of Vietnam Historical Society has been in contact with Philip, and is mentioned in the article.
Preserving the memory of the struggles of the Black April generation through research and documenting memories is truly of great importance for future generations.
