Umumnya saat tersebut akibat situasi politis saat perang pembebasan Vietnam Selatan  1963-1975 pada umumnya rakyat Vietnam sangat takut menyimpan arsip pribadi terkait perang tersebut  yang dapat menjadi bukti mereka terlibat sebagai kolaburator tentara Amerika Serikatndan pasukan Republik Vietnam Selatan  dan para  pejuang pembebasan Vietnam Selatan akan menuduh mereka mata-mata Amerika Serikat  dengan akibat yang  merugikan sipemilik. 2.One of a AVRN Military postal history have found by the writers during visit Ho Chi Minh city (before Saigon) have gave the motivation to write the special book for Indonesian,Vietnam and USA postal history collectors and another collectors from all over the world. Please look that cover illustration below.                                                  Salah satu koleksi pos militer yang ditemui oleh penulis saat kunjungan kedua tahun 2008 di Ho Chi Minh city memberikan motivasi untuk menulis suatu buku khusus untuk kolektor phillatelis di Indonesia,Vietnam dan Amerika Serikat serta laiNYA.After the Vietnam Liberation War finish in 1975, many stamp and postal history collectors Collected     the collection as the factual fact of history, one of the USA collectors have illustrated his AVRN military Postal History and the picture of the sender Lee Ming Dao, in internet IMNAHA Mr Andrew Cresshow.let look one of his collection have sent to me below.                                                                                          3.Sesudah perang  Pembebasan Vietnam Selatan berakhir ditahun 1975 , mulailah banyak kolektor prangko dan benda-benda pos yang terkait sejarah mengumpulkan kolesi yang merupakan data faktual, salah seorang kolektor yang koleksinya ditampilkan dalam situs IMNAHA Andrew Cresshow  menampilkan koleksi pos milter Vietnam selatan  yang disingkat dengan AVRN.lihat salah satu koleksinya yang dikirimkan pada penulis: 4.In 1974, I have met with the Indonesian National Police officer which told me that his friend also from National Police province Riouw Sumatra that time just on duty as the UN peace Force at Saigon (ICCS) and he gave me a ICCS Postal History which send by his friend, base on this first postal history I starting collect another special Vietnam War collections. Please look theillustration below.                                                  Penulis tahun 1974 pernah bertemu dengan  seorang teman di Kepolisian yang menceritakan bahwah seorang Mayor Polisi dari Riauw saat ini bertugas dalam pasukan pengaman PBB di Vietnam Selatan (ICCS),dan ia memberikan penulis sebuah sampul dengan prangko Vietnam yang dikirim oleh temannya tersebut, berdasarkan koleksi pertama tersebut mulailah saya mengumpulkan koleksi postal histori Perang Vietnam . 5. In 2007 and 2008 I visit Saigon (now Ho chi Minh City), with the helping of some antique dealer there which  from etnic Chineseoverseas from Chinese area Cholon, they seeking for me old document and postal history from the garbage document trader (lapak in Indonesia language), and I found the complete and interesting collections,and also from older Jakarta collectors I found several Vietnam War Collections may be from The Indonesia National Army who on duty in ICCS UN peace corps,look at the antique trader with his vietnam war collections below.                                                           Pada  tahun 2007 dan 2008 penulis mengunjungi Saigon (saat ini kota Ho chi Minh) ,berkat bantuan dari beberapa pedagang koleksi antik yang berasal dari Cholon bagian kota yang dihuni oleh kaum perantau Cina yang mencarikan dokumen dan koleksi dari Lapak kertas bekas disana sehingga terkumpullah suatu koleksi yang sangat lengkap dan menarik selain prangko dan meterai juga ditemui uang kertas militer Amerika Serikat yang khusus diedarkan di Vietnam Selatan lihat illustrasi dibawah ini.                                                     Selain itu di Jakarta dari kolektor tua juga di temui beberapa tambahan koleksi yang mungkin dulu berasal dari pasukan Indonesia yang bertugas sebaagai pasukan PBB ICCS, antara lain sebuah plakat penghargaan ICCS.lihat illustrasi dibawah ini:. 6.In 2009 I am starting to write a simple story and add in my internet blog with the same name with historic chronolic,many comment and asked me to edit this simple story with more interesting style and illustrated with more professional photography..  Tahun 2009 penulis memulai suatu tulisan sederhana sebagai pecobaan, di tampilkan dalam suatu blog internet dengan nama yang sama dengan penampilan kronologis historis, banyak tanggapan dan saran agar penulis mengedit dan menyusun tulisan yang lebih sederhan dengan gaya ,cerita yang lebih menarik dilengkapi illustrasi koleksi yang tehnik fotografi yang canggih. 7.The professional writing starting in June 2010 until April 2011 ,with more professional proposal help by the professional team editor,layout and photography, as the firs issue in Private productions limited 100 expl in CR-Rom.

When rebel forces entered the palace, the Ngo brothers were not present, as they escaped the night to the loyalist shelter in Cholon.   The brothers had kept in communication with the rebels through a direct link from the shelter to the palace, and misled them into believing that they were still in the palace.
