VIETNAM - JULY 01: 'Liberation' of Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam in July, 1975-Nguyen Huu Tho, chairman of the National Liberation Front (NLF), the South Vietnamese political organization formed in 1960 in opposition to the U.S.-backed Saigon government. In June 1969 the NLF established a Provisional Revolutionary Government (PRG) with Huynh Tan Phat as president and Nguyen Huu Tho as chairman of its advisory council. The PRG, in effect, became the government of South Vietnam in April 1975, when the Saigon government's troops surrendered to the North Vietnamese and PRG forces. Tho was made a vice president of Vietnam in 1976, a post he held until 1980, when he became acting president. In 1981 Tho was made a vice president of the Council of State, as well as a chairman of the Standing Committee of the National Assembly. (Photo by Jean-Claude LABBE/Gamma-Rapho via Getty Images)
