Common themes of this section include social and political turbulence of Vietnam right before April 30, 1975, corrupted bureaucracy, "boat-people" and refugee-camp experience, evacuation by sea or by air with American troops, Communist oppression and hostility, and post-war reeducation camps. Like the majority of other immigrants and refugees residing in the United States, the Vietnamese also encountered language barriers, cultural and traditional differences, contradictory family values, homesickness, nostalgia, American individualism, alienation, and racial discrimination.
