- - A former vice president of Citibank, John Riordan’s new book, “They Are All My Family: A Daring Rescue in the Chaos of Saigon’s Fall,' tells the tale of his efforts to save his coworkers during the Vietnam War. While working as an assistant manager for Citibank in Saigon, he was ordered to evacuate as the North Vietnamese Army approached and was taken to Hong Kong, where he devised a plan to enable his South Vietnamese coworkers to qualify for evacuation by the U.S. In 1982, Riordan left banking to focus on real estate and now owns and runs an environmental farm in Wisconsin next to some really big buffalo.
