    was at the Thailand base and been helping orphan kids back in 'Nam.  When they heard that Saigon was falling the group (doctors and nurses) tried to "acquire" a chopper to get in there and get those kids.  The base commander locked down the choppers and threatened court marital of any took off.

    She still wonders what happened to those kids...
