On the 40th anniversary of reunification day (04/30/1975 – 04/30/2015), I had an honor to attending a seminar with four correspondents of AP and NBC covering the war in Vietnam from the field more than four decades ago. It was interesting to hear how they covered the war and how their reports and photos were received in the US as well as in other parts of the world.Nick Ut, AP photojournalist won the Pulitzer winner with the Napalmed girl photo. His story about this photo is now featured at the Newseum (a museum about the news and journalism industry) in Washington, D.C. Edith Lederer (middle) was the first AP’s female correspondent for the war in Vietnam. The Indian lady on the far left said that she was only 10 back then and she was shocked watching the news on the war in Vietnam from India.
