Lots of very good information, but sometimes hard to follow because it skips around so much. The fact that "In 1995 Clinton extended diplomatic relations to Vietnam" is in the paragraph before, "President Lyndon B. Johnson deployed Coast Guard cutters to Vietnam (29 April 1965) . . .", and after, "In 1976 President Jimmy Carter pardoned most of the Vietnam war draft dodgers"
