Nearly 30 years ago a boyhood VAN TRAN arrived in America after the Fall of Saigon speaking only 2 words in English. On Monday this Attorney-at-Law and now former Garden Grove City Councilman became the highest elected Vietanmese-American Official in America.

I am proud to say that I voted for Van Tran.
Who also happens to be a Republican.

...and VAN TRAN agrees with Mr. TANCREDO on illegal alien issue.
Viva Van Tran.
Van Tran? For a second I thought he was Dutch.
I know Van Tran---he was opposing counsel in a case I had about four-five years ago. He...ummm..."let me win." (grin) He was also consistently gentlemanly and professional in his dealings with me---naturally charming and people-oriented. He was of course politically active even then, intensely proud of his Vietnamese cultural heritage (he was fluent in Vietnamese...French, too---though we won't hold that against him...), patriotically and levelheadedly conservative, comfortably at home in America. I congratulate him wholeheartedly on his election victory and new public office, and wish the very, very best of luck to him.
