In April of 2008 I returned to Vietnam for 2 weeks. I always said I would return. I spent a week in the Mekong Delta looking for some answers and a week touring. My wife enjoyed the sights as well. Many interesting experiences....more pictures and thoughts to follow.
May 2008 Visit to Viet Cong Veterans Center Had to get permission with the Vietnam Government District Office to be allowed to go there.
They told me I was only the second US Veteran to come there.
After our visit my interpreter said he had a surprise for me. He said do you want to meet Jun's (driver) father? I said who is Jun's father? He is a retired Viet Cong general who at the time you were here in 1968 he was a Major, the 261st Viet Cong Battalion Commander. The 261st Viet Cong Battalion was who we fought in our area of operations.
