In an effort to contain the spread of communism in Southeast Asia, the United States recruited, trained and financed the Hmong and Loas to serve as surrogate soldiers in the American armed forces. Today, there are over 350,000 Hmong living in the United States, with over 81,000 individuals in Minnesota, the largest urbanized Hmong population in the US. Veterans Voices': The Secret War is a program featuring the stories of some of these veterans. To learn more, visit MinnesotaVets.org
