Final Day

During the past two weeks I have reflected many times that this might have been my second trip to Viet Nam. I wondered what it would have been like through the eyes of an eighteen year just out of high school, not yet having the opportunity to go to college due to the draft, but the war instead. The difficultly of understanding the reasons thirty nine years ago and still asking the same question of why?

We have learned so much about the people of Viet Nam and the culture of their country. I have had to opportunity to share this experience with your daughters and sons. They are the future for our country as we move forward to a peaceful world.

Together we have gotten to know our travel guide Quynh and all hope to return again to his wonderful country. We will never be able to thank him enough for this memorable experience. Ben
