Large-scale Vietnamese migration to the United States began as a humanitarian flow after the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. As of 2014, 1.3 million Vietnamese immigrants resided in the United States, the sixth largest immigrant group in the country.

Three Vietnamese-Americans discuss their earliest memories, biggest challenges, and successes as they and their families settled in the Pacific Northwest. This discussion is a collaboration between the GAC and Peace Tree Vietnam, with additional support from the Center for Global Studies, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington.
