Many of the emotional challenges facing children born of the Second World War were a result of them being part of a hidden population, but the situation was often the exact opposite for children born of later conflicts. This chapter provides the war context and the particular geopolitical circumstances of American engagement in South East Asia. It explores the US military policies with regard to military-civilian relations in the context of deployment in Indochina and its effect on attitudes towards GI children. The chapter analyses of two distinct phases of US intervention on behalf of those children: the evacuation of babies and young children in Operation Babylift, and the Amerasian Homecoming Act. It investigates the experiences of different groups of Vietnamericans, who were 'brought home' at different stages of their lives, as part of these distinct US immigration policies.
