在越南最后的日子(Last Days in Vietnam) 第11期

我们已将生死置之度外 We planned it to death.

在我理解 这一系列命令 The chain of command, as I understood it

杰拉德·贝里 海上飞行员

作为一个美国海军陆战队的上校 as a captain of the United States Marine Corps,

我觉得这没错 and I think I got it right,

任何的撤退行动 is that for any evacuation,

其决定都是大使的决定 that decision is the Ambassador's decision.

葛雷恩·马丁是一个负责任的家伙 Graham Martin is the responsible guy.

但军队更有责任 But the military is responsible

给他提供各种方案 for giving him all kinds of plans.

然后我们有了四个方案 And this is how we got into the four options.

第一个方案是 The first option was

把商船开到西贡河 you would take commercial ships right up the Saigon River

那儿离大使馆有几个街区 to a couple blocks from the embassy.

把任何你想带的人 You would load whoever you wanted

带到这些船上 然后就完事了 to bring out on these ships and you'd be done with it.

第二个方案就是 你知道的 The second option was, you know,

联合大陆航空公司和飞虎航空 United and Continental and Flying Tiger Airlines

那时候仍在使用柔佛巴鲁县空军基地 were still using Tan Son Nhut Air Force Base at the time,

你可以通过商业飞行 and you could've brought anybody you wanted out

把任何你想带的人带出去 by commercial aviation.

第三个方案是军用固定翼飞机 The third option was military fixed-wing aviation...

像A5As C-141s 都可以载很多人 The C5As, the C-141s, which carry a lot of people.

可以通过它们把人从柔佛巴鲁机场运送出去 You could've brought them out of Tan Son Nhut on those.

最后一个选择 最后一个选择 The very last option, the very last option,

是通过在柔佛巴鲁县空军基地 was helicopters off the carriers

的直升机载人 in the Tan Son Nhut Air Force Base.

我们在那有75架海军陆战队的直升飞机 We had 75 Marine Corps helicopters out there.

直升机方案 The helicopter option,

是不到万不得已不用的最后方案 that was absolutely the last resort.

你知道的 它们既不是很快 You know, they don't go very fast,

也载不了很多人 they don't carry that many people.

如果其他方案都失败的话 就只有直升机了 That was if everything else failed.

我到越南的时候都已经是1975年4月24日了 I got into Vietnam late on the 24th of April, 1975.

整个西贡市 虚假宣传 谣言密布 Saigon was full of rumor, of false stories,

是否我们需要最后尝试 whether we were going to have a last attempt

给整个国家画一条线 to draw a line across the country,

西贡及其以南仍然是一个言论自由的共和国 that Saigon and the south would remain a free republic,
