After the evacuation of Saigon in April 1975, the US State Department established four refugee resettlement camps in California, Arkansas, Florida, and Pennsylvania. From May 28 to December 15, 1975, over 32,000 Vietnamese and Cambiodian refugees lived on the US Army post now called the Indiantown Gap Military Reservation,  in southeastern Pennsylvania, awaiting resettlement.
