Jiverly Wong shooter in Binghamton was he Regular Army in the Cambodian–Vietnamese War 1986 on.

Binghamton, N.Y., authorities called the gunman who shot 13 people dead at an immigration center a "coward" who planned to fight police but later changed his mind and committed suicide. Police Chief Joseph Zikuski identified the shooter as 41-year-old Jiverly Wong DOB 12/08/1967, and said he had voluntarily changed his last name to Voong.

"He arrived wearing body armor," the chief told a news conference Saturday. "At one point in his thinking process, he was going to take on police or at least stop them from stopping him. He must have been a coward. We speculate that when he heard the sirens, he decided to take his own life." Wong sends a carzy letter to New 10 TV in Syracuse NY on the day of the shooting, see letter click here.

Jiverly Wong was born in Vietnam in 1967 at the height of the US War, things did not get better, his Chinese family fled Vietnam in 1989 when he was 22, see his USA entry photo above. The Communist Government of Vietnam, to maintain it's Military manpower in the Army and Airforce, has military age for compulsory service of 18–25 years, this would have been 1986 to 1989 for Jiverly Wong when he was in Vietnam, he would have had to serve in the Communist Army of Vietnam and would have served in the
Cambodian–Vietnamese War of 1975 to 1989.

Cambodian–Vietnamese War followed the Second Indochina War in 1975, Vietnam invaded Cambodia and deposed the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime. The war lasted from May 1975 to December 1989.

Was Jiverly Wong regular army soldier with the Communist government of a united Vietnam, Jiverly Wong was of military age (22) when his family fled Vietnam in 1989, who was he fighting for ?

Cambodian–Vietnamese War (1975–1989)
The Cambodian-Vietnamese War was a series of conflicts between the two countries, culminating in the
Vietnamese invasion and subsequent occupation of Cambodia and the removal of the Khmer Rouge regime from power.

The conflict, apart from highlighting the traditional animosities between Vietnam and Cambodia, also revealed how deeply the
Sino-Soviet split had broken open the communist movement of the time.

The Communist Party of Vietnam had sided with (after a period of ambivalence) the Soviet Union whereas the Communist Party of Kampuchea remained loyal with the People's Republic of China.
