Tom and Meihwa were in South Vietnam as volunteers with various aid organizations. They provided goods and services to many of the outlying villages. Desperate for a way out of South Vietnam in April of 1975, they volunteered for Operation Babylift. They were supposed to be on the first flight out, but their exit visas were not in order. That saved their life as the first flight crashed.
