Richard Pena, Last Plane Out of Saigon

Richard Pena served in Vietnam and is now a practicing attorney in Austin, Texas. He left on the last day of American military involvement in Vietnam in March 1973. While overseas, Richard served as an OR tech in the operating room of Vietnam's largest military hospital during the final year of the war. As an attorney, he has served as former president of the American Bar Foundation and former president of the State Bar of Texas. He is nationally recognized among legal professionals and has led countless legal delegations abroad to various countries. While on one of his delegation trips to Vietnam, Richard visited the Ho Chi Minh City War Remnants Museum where he recognized himself in a photo titled "Last Plane Out." Seeing this photo, featured on the cover, inspired Richard to reread the journal he kept while at war, which would eventually become Last Plane Out of Saigon.
