As if uncle ho could be with us in this joyful, victorious day

Ho Chi Minh did not live to see the final surrender of the South having passed away some six years prior in 1969, but his presence was certainly felt. In the image above, a young woman - a NLF fighter with rifle in hand, joins hands with a women in a traditional ao dai who has the dove of peace soaring from her other hand. Uncle Ho beams down flanked by the NLF and Vietnamese flags.
