DESIGN STORY In the final days of the Vietnam War, radios across Saigon played a secret message for U.S. personnel to evacuate the city: “The temperature is 105 degrees and rising,” followed by the song “White Christmas.”
Between 29-30 April 1975, the U.S. military carried out “Operation Frequent Wind”—helicopters extracted 7,000+ Americans and Vietnamese from Saigon to aircraft carriers off the coast, while 138,000+ additional refugees self-evacuated by air or boat.
That song signaled the end of the war, but also marked the beginning of a new life abroad.
