Jane Fonda seated at anti-aircraft gun in North Vietnam, July 1972.
These guns were used to shoot down
American airplanes and to kill American pilots and aircrew.
This photo shows Jane Fonda with about 12-13 Vietnamese, probably the regular gun crew surrounded by photographers and reporters and bystanders from the People's Army of Vietnam. Three bystanders are in civilian dress. The photograph was taken during Fonda's trip to Vietnam with Tom Hayden. During her visit Fonda spoke on Radio Hanoi and American POW were forced to listen. Fonda and Hayden married and had one child, Troi (the actor Troy Garrity) named after a Vietnamese.

In her book, My Life So Far, Fonda captions the same scene in an AP/Wide World photo with; "I am standing next to the antiaircraft gun, singing a Vietnamese song back to the soldiers right before I sit in the gun's seat."

1988, some 16 years after her 1972 tour of Hanoi when she made her
radio broadcast and had her picture taken behind the same anti-
aircraft guns that were shooting down US pilots, Jane Fonda appeard on
20/20 and was interviewed by Barbara Walters.
Two versions of this interview exist, one an actual transcript, the other a press release.< style="font-family: helvetica,arial,sans-serif;">The transcript reads:
ACROSS AMERICA HONORING A TRAITOR: This is for all the kids born in the 70's that do not remember this, and didn't have to bear the burden, that our fathers, mothers, and older brothers and sisters had to bear. Jane Fonda is being honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century." Unfortunately, many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our country but specific men who served and sacrificed during Vietnam.This does not exemplify someone who should be honored as part of "100 Years of Great Women." Lest we forget..."100 years of great women" should never include a traitor whose hands are covered with the blood of so many patriots. There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Hanoi Jane's participation in blatant treason, is one of them.
Please take the time to forward to as many people as you possibly can. It will eventually end up on her computer and she needs to know that we will never forget.
