Military Compass of the Secret War in Laos: A Donation from Youa Ge Vang


This rare, actual military compass was given to Youa Ge Vang when he was a military officer in the Secret War Army in Laos. It was used in action and brought with him to the United States after the Communists took over the country. It was kept with him until early 2016 when Youa Ge decided that it was best to donate to and be preserved by the Hmong Archives for future generations.
