“I must have been 6 or 7 years old. I remember gun battle, unmanned helicopter, deserted soldiers. There were candy stores that no one was watching. I wondered if we could just go get candies!”

Van recalled his last memories of Vietnam before he left with his father, grandmother and eight brothers and sisters in April 1975 during the Fall of Saigon.

My special guest on the feisworld podcast is Van Le. We first met in 2006 and kept in touch ever since. Van is now the father of two adorable children and runs his law practice at Van Paul Le, PC Law Firm in Dorchester, MA.

In this episode, Van speaks to us about his journey from the Fall of Saigon to Commonwealth School, Harvard University (and running the biggest student organization at Harvard called Phillips Brooks House as the President during Junior and Senior year), running a campaign for the Mayor of Cambridge (and won), one year of public service in Philippines, the Sports Philanthropy Project and most recently launching his own law practice.
