Dateline-Saigon produced a wave of sad nostalgia for a war and a time when America lost its innocence and later a conflict in which it had only marginal national interest. It was a time though when young journalists learned to cover a different kind of war, and became the educational tool for informing the American people about the realities of what was happening in Vietnam.
