Description
An oral history of Annie Thuy Tran, born in 1961 in Phan Thiet, Vietnam. She recalls her childhood memories of going on business trips with her father and living with nuns in Cam Ranh Bay, where the U.S. military base was stationed. There, she was able to experience American food. She emphasizes on her experiences during the war in 1975, traveling by boat with her family and passing through Vung Tau and Guam to go to Camp Pendleton. Her family was sponsored by a church and resettled in Huntington Beach, California. After the war, Annie worked with an insurance company while in school and completed her degree in business. Annie currently resides in Orange County, California and has 4 children and 2 grandchildren.
