Vietnam, 30 Years Later

In a weeklong series, NPR's Michael Sullivan takes a look at Vietnam, 30 years after U.S. troops left the country and the end of the Vietnam War. In the first story, he journeys on the north-south Highway 1, on the border with China. The first stop is Lang Son, a town the Chinese once occupied.
