Several requests from students and other visitors have asked if the photos
depicting Jane Fonda sitting on an NVA anti-aircraft gun were really her or not. The answer to this question is YES. Jane Fonda has expressed her regrets for having her picture taken while
sitting on the anti-aircraft gun and for the pain that her action has caused many American Veterans.

Another student had requested the transcript of Jane Fonda's
radio address which she had broadcast in North Vietnam. This transcription, dated August 22, 1972 was made from her
Hotel Especen broadcast in Hanoi at 7:11 p.m.
The following was submitted in the U.S. Congress House
Committee on Internal Security, Travel to Hostile Areas. [HR16742, 19-25 September 1972, page 761]
This is Jane Fonda. During my two week visit in the Democratic
Republic of Vietnam, I've had the opportunity to visit a great many places and speak to a large number of people from all
walks of life- workers, peasants, students, artists and dancers, historians, journalists, film actresses, soldiers, militia
girls, members of the women's union, writers.
I visited the (Dam Xuac) agricultural coop, where the silk
worms are also raised and thread is made. I visited a textile factory, a kindergarten in Hanoi. The beautiful Temple of Literature
was where I saw traditional dances and heard songs of resistance. I also saw unforgettable ballet about the guerrillas training
bees in the south to attack enemy soldiers. The bees were danced by women, and they did their job well.
In the shadow of the Temple of Literature I saw Vietnamese
actors and actresses perform the second act of Arthur Miller's play All My Sons, and this was very moving to me- the fact
that artists here are translating and performing American plays while US imperialists are bombing their country.
I cherish the memory of the blushing militia girls on the
roof of their factory, encouraging one of their sisters as she sang a song praising the blue sky of Vietnam- these women,
who are so gentle and poetic, whose voices are so beautiful, but who, when American planes are bombing their city, become
such good fighters.
I cherish the way a farmer evacuated from Hanoi, without hesitation,
offered me, an American, their best individual bomb shelter while US bombs fell near by. The daughter and I, in fact, shared
the shelter wrapped in each others arms, cheek against cheek. It was on the road back from Nam Dinh, where I had witnessed
the systematic destruction of civilian targets- schools, hospitals, pagodas, the factories, houses, and the dike system.
As I left the United States two weeks ago, Nixon was again
telling the American people that he was winding down the war, but in the rubble- strewn streets of Nam Dinh, his words echoed
with sinister (words indistinct) of a true killer. And like the young Vietnamese woman I held in my arms clinging to me tightly-
and I pressed my cheek against hers- I thought, this is a war against Vietnam perhaps, but the tragedy is America's.
One thing that I have learned beyond a shadow of a doubt since
I've been in this country is that Nixon will never be able to break the spirit of these people; he'll never be able to turn
Vietnam, north and south, into a neo- colony of the United States by bombing, by invading, by attacking in any way. One has
only to go into the countryside and listen to the peasants describe the lives they led before the revolution to understand
why every bomb that is dropped only strengthens their determination to resist. I've spoken to many peasants who talked about
the days when their parents had to sell themselves to landlords as virtually slaves, when there were very few schools and
much illiteracy, inadequate medical care, when they were not masters of their own lives.
But now, despite the bombs, despite the crimes being created-
being committed against them by Richard Nixon, these people own their own land, build their own schools- the children learning,
literacy- illiteracy is being wiped out, there is no more prostitution as there was during the time when this was a French
colony. In other words, the people have taken power into their own hands, and they are controlling their own lives.
And after 4,000 years of struggling against nature and foreign
invaders- and the last 25 years, prior to the revolution, of struggling against French colonialism- I don't think that the
people of Vietnam are about to compromise in any way, shape or form about the freedom and independence of their country, and
I think Richard Nixon would do well to read Vietnamese history, particularly their poetry, and particularly the poetry written
by Ho Chi Minh.

Background of Jane Fonda's Anti-War Activities
While American Soldiers were fighting and dying in the Vietnam War, Jane Fonda,
the daughter of Henry Fonda, was using her money and influence at colleges and universities to gather support to advocate
communism and encourage rebellion and anarchy against the United States Government.
On November 21, 1970 she
told a University of Michigan audience of some two thousand students, "If you understood what communism was, you would hope,
you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist." At Duke University in North Carolina she repeated what
she had said in Michigan, adding "I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism.
" Washington Times July 7, 2000
Jane Fonda began her participation in anti-war activities around 1967,
allegedly after meeting with Communists while in France and with American citizens who were revolutionaries. Her
activities included active participation in demonstrations, rallies, radio broadcasts and plays.
Jane Fonda also helped in the organization of a production group called
the F.T.A. (F*** The Army). This group helped to set up coffee houses near military bases where they would perform anti-war
derogatory-type sketches for the visiting soldiers. The coffee-house sketches were intended to counterpoint the U.S.O.
shows, such as Bob Hope and other U.S.O. sponsored performers whose performances increased morale and gave positive
support to American soldiers. Some of the F.T.A. coffee house employees would mingle with the soldiers to help
them to "relax and unwind", while encouraging the soldiers to desert. Some soldiers alleged that they were promised
jobs and money by the F.T.A. if they deserted.
The Vietnam Veterans Against the War Organization received major financial support
from Jane Fonda. Jane Fonda's F.T.A. coffee houses helped in recruiting soldiers and veterans for the Vietnam Veterans
Against The War Organization. The Vietnam Veterans Against the War Organization membership was approximately 7,000
at it's highest. The Organization's membership number was comparatively low, when you consider that more than 2 1/2
million Americans served during the Vietnam war.
Jane Fonda personally sought out returning American soldiers from Vietnam
to solicit them to publicly speak out against American atrocities against Vietnamese women and children during her broadcasts.
North Vietnamese officials based in Canada allegedly coordinated her broadcasts.
In 1972 Jane Fonda, Tom Hayden and others traveled to North Vietnam
to give their support to the North Vietnamese's Government. When she returned to the United States, she advised the
news media that all of the American Prisoners of War were being well treated and were not being tortured.
As the American POWs returned home in 1973, they spoke out about the
inhumane treatment and torture they had suffered as prisoners of war. Their stories directly contradicted Jane Fonda's
earlier statements of 1972. Some of the American POWs such as Senator John McCain, a former Presidential candidate,
stated that he was tortured by his guards for refusing to meet with Jane Fonda and her group. Jane Fonda, in her response
to these new allegations, referred to the returning POWs as being "hypocrites and liars."
The Wall Street Journal (August 3, 1995) published an interview with
Bui Tin who served on the General Staff of the North Vietnam Army and received the unconditional surrender of South Vietnam
on April 30, 1975. During the interview Mr. Tin was asked if the American antiwar movement was important to Hanoi's
victory. Mr. Tin responded "It was essential to our strategy" referring to the war being fought on two fronts,
the Vietnam battlefield and back home in America through the antiwar movement on college campuses and in the city streets.
He further stated the North Vietnamese leadership listened to the American evening news broadcasts "to follow the growth of
the American antiwar movement."
Visits to Hanoi made by persons such as Jane Fonda, former Attorney
General Ramsey Clark and various church ministers "gave us confidence that we should hold on in the face of battlefield reverses."
Mr. Tin surmised that "America lost because of its democracy; through dissent and protest it lost the ability to mobilize a will
to win." Mr. Tin further advised that General Vo Nguyen Giap (Commanding General of the North Vietnam Army) said the
1968 Tet Offensive was a defeat.
The military defeat of North Vietnam after the Tet Offensive of 1968 became
a political victory for North Vietnam because of anti-war demonstrations and the sensationalism of the news media.
The North Vietnamese interpreted the U.S. reaction to these events as the weakening of America's resolve to win the war.
The North Vietnamese believed that victory could be theirs, if they stayed their course.
From 1969 until the end of the war, over 20,000 American soldiers lost their lives in a
war that the United States did not have the resolve to win. The sensationalism by the American news media and the anti-war
protests following the 1968 Tet Offensive gave hope to Communist North Vietnam, strengthening their belief that their will
to succeed was greater than ours. Instead of seeking a successful resolution at the Paris Peace Conference following
the disastrous defeat of the 1968 Tet Offensive, they employed delay tactics as another tool to inflame U.S. politics.
This delaying tactic spurned further anti-war demonstrations. Those who sensationalized their reporting of the war and
those who supported anti-war demonstrations are guilty of giving our enemy hope. Because of their actions, they must
share partial responsibility for those 20,000 + Americans deaths.
We won the war on the battlefield but lost it back home on the college campuses and in the
Americans must realize that there are agents* operating in this Country attempting to undermine
our Country and it's leadership through our democratic principles in an effort to achieve a foreign country's goal.
A prime example of such a person during the Vietnam War was Jane Fonda, an admitted Socialist, who blatantly supported North Vietnam.
* Agent - Any person who works to obtain the goals of another nation either for money or for their own political beliefs.
A valuable lesson was taught by North Vietnam to other nations on how the United States
may be defeated by fighting a two front war - the battlefield and the American home front. We must be aware of this
In 1975, after the fall of the South Vietnam Government, Jane Fonda returned to
Hanoi with her newborn son Troy for a celebration in her honor for the work she had done for North Vietnam. During the
celebration, her son was christened after a Viet Cong hero, Nguyen Van Troi. Troi had attempted to assassinate
Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara while on his visit to South Vietnam in 1963. The South Vietnam Government
executed Troi for this attempted assassination.
I have heard and read that some people believe that Jane Fonda was simply
young and impressionable. Jane Fonda was born on December 21, 1937. She was 34 years old when she
made her infamous trip to North Vietnam and was in her 30's when she participated in anti-war demonstrations and rallies.
During this same time period a large number of young American soldiers, who had not yet reached their 21st birthday, were
fighting the war in Vietnam and were held accountable for all of their actions. These same young soldiers were, upon
their return to the United States, still not of legal age to vote or buy alcoholic beverages. Jane Fonda was an adult
when she made these conscious decisions and actions, and as such, she is responsible and should be held accountable.
The Vietnam Memorial Wall contains the names of 25,493 American soldiers who served their Country and paid the ultimate price
for freedom who were under the age of 21 ( Casualty Statistics).
Many Veterans would have enjoyed seeing the following mug shot of Jane Fonda taken
for her treasonous acts, instead of the bogus drug charge which was later dropped.
is a joke how much the American News media is covering this "Jane Fonda is a victim story." Tens-of-Thousands
of Vietnam Veterans were spit upon when they returned from Vietnam, yet it wasn't a National Story. Jane Fonda's Treasonous
Actions against America is what helped trigger those airport attacks on Vietnam Vets.
It's a shame that so many American newspapers are making Jane Fonda out to be a victim.
She is lucky that the Federal Government never tried her for treason. There still is enough evidence
Mike Smith did not spit in Fonda's face because of her political beliefs. Mike spit in her face, because
Jane Fonda committed treason against the People of the United States and their Military. (And Jane Fonda intentionally caused
physical harm to our POWs in Vietnam.)
Mike Smith will have his day in court. However, so should Jane Fonda... Please write
to your members of Congress and the U.S. Senate. Jane Fonda should get her day in court.
is positive and is earned everyday by our military and veterans.
Treason is an evil performed against our nation by her
enemies within...Please understand the difference...

Hanoi Jane years may be decades behind her, but there's at least one Vietnam vet who's still spitting mad at Jane Fonda. Literally.
The two-time Oscar-winning actress got a face full of tobacco juice Tuesday in Kansas City during a book signing for her new
autobiography, My Life So Far.
The Vietnam Veteran, who spit in Jane Fonda's face, is a former CAP
Marine and a friend of mine. He served and lived honorably in a Vietnamese peasant village near Dai Loc, about
4 miles from me. He did it for all servicemen and servicewomen. Please read below.
Did you see Fox News tonight. Mike Smith
talked about the topic of Jane Fonda, I though it was great to see a CAP Marines picture on the tube.
do you think

As usual, the message that was
aired was a small portion of what I said. The point that I tried to stress to them was this:
A large part of war is psychological.
If you can demoralize your enemy, you can beat him. What she did in Hanoi was an attempt to demoralize her ENEMIES. She says
that she was protesting the policies of our government.
However, our government wasn't flying over that AA gun, our servicemen
Our government wasn't being shot down and forced into those horrible prison camps to be tortured for years, our
servicemen were. Our government doesn't have it's name on the Wall, our servicemen do.
I've had calls from the Today
show, Good Morning America, Inside Edition, Fox News Channel, some New York newspapers, and somebody from L.A. I told all
of them that I don't want to do any national interviews because I already know how they will slant it and try to make me look
like the bad guy.
I alaso told them I didn't do this for me, but that it was a debt of honor in that I had the opportunity
to do something that most vets won't get a chance to do, but would like to do.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A man spit tobacco juice into the face of actress Jane Fonda after waiting in line to have her sign her new book, police said.
The man ran off but was quickly caught by police Tuesday night and charged with disorderly conduct.
Fonda has been on tour and doing interviews to promote her just-published memoir, "My Life So Far." The thrice-married,
two-time Academy Award winner covers a wide array of topics, including her 1972 visit to Hanoi to protest the Vietnam War,
during which she was photographed on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun. She has apologized for that photo, but not for
opposing the war.
Capt. Rich Lockhart of the Kansas City Police Department said that although Fonda did not want to press charges
against Michael A. Smith, 54, of Kansas City, he was arrested on a municipal charge of disorderly conduct after off-duty officers
caught him just outside Unity Temple, where Fonda was signing books.
Lockhart said Smith was released on bond late Tuesday night and is due to appear in municipal court on May 27.
Smith, a Vietnam veteran, told The Kansas City Star on Wednesday that Fonda was a "traitor" and that her protests
against the war were unforgivable. He said he normally does not chew tobacco but did so Tuesday solely to spit juice on the
"I consider it a debt of honor," he told The Star for a story on its Web site, www.kansascity.com. "She spit
in our faces for 37 years. It was absolutely worth it. There are a lot of veterans who would love to do what I did."
Fonda drew a crowd of about 900 for her appearance, said Vivian Jennings, whose Rainy Day Books of suburban
Fairway, Kan., sponsored the event at Unity Temple in Kansas City. Fonda, 67, spoke for about 15 minutes, answered questions
for another 15, then began signing copies of her book.
Jennings said Fonda received a standing ovation when she came out and when she finished speaking. Alan Tilson,
one of those who had his book signed but left before the incident, said the crowd was very "warm and supportive" to Fonda
and he was surprised to learn what had happened.
Jennings said the actress never got up from her seat and continued autographing books after the tobacco juice
was wiped off.
"The important thing is that she was so calm and so gracious about it," Jennings said of Fonda. "She was wonderful."
Jennings said that the man had a book to which the name "Jody" had been affixed as he approached to have it
autographed. She said that when Fonda got the book, she looked up and said, "You're not Jody."
"At that moment, he turned his head quickly and spit a trail of tobacco juice," Jennings said. "He immediately
jumped off the stage and started running down the aisle."
Fonda, who flew to Minneapolis Wednesday for another appearance on the book tour she began April 5, issued a
statement through Jynne Martin of Random House, which published her book.
"In spite of the incident, my experience in Kansas City was wonderful and I thank all the warm and supportive
people, including so many veterans, who came to welcome me last night," Fonda said.
Thank all of you very much. Yesterday was a real circus with every TV station in
town knocking on the door. Surprisingly enough, I think the Kansas City Star did a pretty fair job of reporting it. And, by
the way, almost every police officer in the station made the effort to come to the lockup to shake my hand and say thank you.
My court date is May 27, so I don't have any idea what the fine will be. The KC Star said they had a stack of emails yesterday
morning offering help with legal fees. Even the police officers gave me advice on it, suggesting that I take my PTSD councilor
to court with me. One radio talk show host tried to do a hatchet job on me, but people who responded were for me by 72%.
one of the best lines wasn't published. One guy asked what I would say to people who say that she has the right to say and
think whatever she wants. I said I would say, on behalf of the entire Marine Corp, living and dead, "You're welcome". God
bless all of you for your support.
Semper Fidelis (let me say that again)
The truth is coming out on the Vietnam War. Jane Fonda and her
communist Vietnam supporters will be found out. There will never be another Vietnam War. There will always be
American support of her brave, men and women in uniform.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
