Hi James - nice story.  I have one.  My recruiter in the West for TGI Friday's parents where two of those rescued by the Marines on top of the embassy in Saigon in 1975.

Good morning again, James... an immigrant success story. As an immigrant, myself, I love them and can't get enough of them... especially if they are about women!

She sounds like an incredible woman and since she is in Houston I wonder if my friend Kathy knows of her.

Hi James- this is another wonderful success story of an immigrant who came to the US and worked hard for what she wanted. And as a Houstonian, I am very proud of her.

Love these immigration stories of coming to this country and achieving great things. I wish the media would highlight these remarkable people who overcame adversity to do great things.
