In this episode we discuss how the Việt Nam War affects the 1.5 and 2nd generation of Vietnamese Americans.
The term first-generation refers to the children of immigrants born in the new country. The term second-generation refers to children of first-generation, the grandchildren of the immigrant. The term 1.5 generation is a term coined for people who identify as "first generation", yet lack the necessary acculturation.
