American Experience - The Last Days of Vietnam:

During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, as the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon, the South Vietnamese resistance crumbled. The United States had only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. With a communist victory inevitable and the U.S. readying to withdraw, many Americans on the ground worried their South Vietnamese allies and friends faced imprisonment or death at the hands of the approaching North Vietnamese. With the clock ticking and the city under fire, a number of heroic Americans took matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese as possible.

San Manuel Presents Gift to FNX:

Several years ago the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians made a major grant to the San Bernardino Community College District to establish & operate First Nations Experience (FNX), a non-profit television channel where Native American People could tell their own stories, in their own words.  FNX is thriving. Based in it's studio within KVCR, & available by satellite, FNX produces programs, networks with other Native American cable, TV, & satellite providers in the US & abroad and is winning prestigious media awards. Following a religious ceremony on the grounds of SBVC, then within the studios of KVCR / FNX, officials of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians presented their check to SBCCD/KVCR for an additional grant of  6 million dollars for expanded FNX  program content, distribution, & satellite production.


Watchers of the North:

The Canadian Rangers are a volunteer reserve branch within the Canadian Forces. Their job? They act as a military presence in the North, and in remote and sparsely populated parts of Canada. Canadian Ranger patrols are made up of Inuit, Metis, First Nations and non-Aboriginal men and women, depending on the region. You'll find them conducting surveillance and sovereignty patrols in the North and acting as guides, scouts, and experts when Regular Forces need wilderness and Arctic survival skills. They are also trained in basic First Aid and Search and Rescue skills, and often act as a first responders and Search teams before other help arrive!
