HELENA, Mont. — American troops leaving Afghanistan is familiar to those Vietnam veterans who were pulled out of their war back in the 1970s.
One veteran from Helena recently released a book about his time serving in the Vietnam War.
Author and Vietnam Veteran John Quintrell said leaving Afghanistan and Vietnam have storming similarities.
He says in both situations there were interpreters and other refugees working for the U.S. government who got left behind when the wars ended.
