Background: agencies. during the last hour before grey alert went into effect at 1700, there were almost no Americans to be seen - military or civilian. Saigon at this time of year really is grey at that time of day, as the monsoon rains come right on time shortly after 1600hrs. Now near end of monsoon season.
