I am glad you know about him and his family. Gen. Fernandez was a Phillipino/Cambodian who was a minister of war/defense of Cambodia during the Lon Nol Government from 1970-75. He left Cambodia when the country fell to the Khmer Rouge. His other associate was Minister Sokam Koy who live in Stckton.

General Sosthène Fernandez was a Khmer-Filipino commander-in-chief of the Khmer National Armed Forces.

He is apart of our history and said to be a very influential General that lef the fight against the Khmer Rouge, Viet Cong and North Vietnamese.

But because of the cut off of U.S. support of military supplies his army was not able to maintain their tempo fighting against 3 enemies while the enemies were being supported by ACTIVE supply routes from the USSR and China.
