by Dick Pirozzolo, Pirozzolo Company Public Relations @ "Escape from Saigon - a Novel"

In a ProPublica article by Charles Ornstein, published days before Veterans Day, the Veterans Administration told Vietnam Vets who suffer from bladder cancer, thyroid disease, hypertension and Parkinson's like symptoms associated with exposure to Agent Orange to keep on waiting to find out whether they will be compensated for exposure to the deadly defoliant used throughout the protracted war in Southeast Asia.

The Worcester Sunday Telegram: 'Escape from Saigon’ captures War’s end."

by Dick Pirozzolo, Pirozzolo Company Public Relations @ "Escape from Saigon - a Novel"

They tell the story through the lives of war correspondents Sam Esposito and Lisette Vo, sandwiched between a terse narrative about the final decline of opposition to the north. Sam returns to Vietnam as a Washington, D.C., newspaper correspondent after the Kennedy assassination, wanting to get away from the U.S. He’s remained there for 13 years. Lisette is half-French, half-Vietnamese, and American, working for a broadcast news company. “She portends the rise of women in the media,” Pirozzolo said. They remain until the bitter end because of their work. “They’re journalists,” Dick Pirozzolo said

"Life with My Father ABC-TV journalist Frank Mariano" By Tony Mariano

by Dick Pirozzolo, Pirozzolo Company Public Relations @ "Escape from Saigon - a Novel"

Life with my father Frank Mariano ABC-TV war correspondent by Tony Mariano: My mother and I would call that house home and for the first time in our lives we were all together as a family.  But my father, a former Army helicopter pilot, and now a civilian, was compelled to return to Vietnam. He went with $1,500 in his pocket in late ’68 figuratively trading in his grip on a helicopter’s cyclic and collective to hold a microphone and begin a new career as a stringer for ABC News Radio at age 39. Though he was away from home, I was comforted by the fact that I could hear his voice and see him on TV.

Writer Dick Pirozzolo of "Escape from Saigon" Marks November 11 by Calling for Employers to Hire Veterans—Cites Leadership, Other Skills

by Dick Pirozzolo, Pirozzolo Company Public Relations @ "Escape from Saigon - a Novel"

Best way to thank someone for their service is to make sure employers are considering them for jobs that utilize the leadership and management skills acquired in the military. Most notably, their can-do spirit. Military folks believe they can achieve anything. After returning from Vietnam, I served with the 253 Combat Communication Group in Massachusetts. We could install all the navigation, air traffic control and communication needed for a temporary airport, while the Navy Seabees, built the runway and erected tents for the whole lot of us. Done quickly and as a matter of routine. And consider Mike Cotton, who created a surf club at China Beach while serving in Vietnam so that airmen and soldiers could get a taste of home when they were off duty. It would be great to hear from veterans about their job hunting experiences, how the military helped them with their careers and also from companies looking to hire smart, motivated veterans with a can-do attitude.

by Dick Pirozzolo, Pirozzolo Company Public Relations @ "Escape from Saigon - a Novel"

War correspondent Carmen Gentile on the fake transgender ban by Donald Trump: "What surprises and concerns me is about this fabricated controversy swirling around an issue that was settled by the Obama administration is the attitudes of some service men and women and veterans I know who seem to think that transgender soldiers, marines, sailor and airmen aren’t capable of performing at the same level of others. "One soldier I know from my time embedding with US forces in Iraq and Afghanistan said he was worried that transgender personnel may not be as prepared to fight on a moment’s notice while undergoing any number of medical procedures for transitioning."

Saigon Ranks With Casablanca, Shanghai or Istanbul, for Intrigue, Mystery Danger and Romance

Saigon, like Casablanca, Shanghai or Istanbul, is a city synonymous with intrigue, mystery, danger and romance. Perhaps that is why so many stories are set in Saigon—once known as the Pearl of the Orient and celebrated for its Parisian boulevards, French colonial villas, intimate piano bars and of course brothels.
