137. Nguyen Cao Ky, the Dick Cheney of South Vietnam.
The "old dude" is Ellsworth Bunker. At the time, he was U.S. ambassador to South Vietnam. One of the true public servants in that sorry sordid affair. Look at his stare toward Henry K.

The ambassador's family is the same family from Bunker Hill fame. One of his cousins, Paul Bunker, was taken prisoner by the Japanese at Corregidor. He sewed a piece of the flag inside his uniform and kept it from his captors. He died from privation a year or so before the war ended.
