The Montagnards, who served alongside the US in Vietnam, resettled in the US in 1992 where a resolution was recently introduced to the Senate by North Carolina to recognize them. As indigenous “mountaineers” who saved the lives of thousands of US soldiers, they have endless support from their US allies, but need the full backing of the Senate. Those who remained in Vietnam have been subjected to imprisonment and oppression and are prevented from seeing family members. If the resolution passes in the US, it will also prompt the US government to condemn the human rights violations happening in the Montagnards’ home country. The US should always choose to stand by those who stand by it.
