Sonia Johnston and her family will tell the story of how they fled from Vietnam after the fall of Saigon in 1975 and made their way to Arlington. Sonia, then known by her Vietnamese name, To Nga) was a 23-year old interpreter for US forces. To avoid capture by advancing North Vietnamese troops, she boarded a helicopter atop the U.S. embassy and was whisked away to a refugee camp. It would take almost 10 years for the family to be reunited in Northern Virginia. This is a story of determination and hope.
