Moving forward, Hoa Binh Chapter -- add some officers to the letterhead?

Chuck,



This is a great blog, an excellent tool that we ought to use much more, and I'm guilty as anybody of being lazy and not taking advantage of this asset.  Good on you to put together such a great vehicle for communicating.  I'll try to make better use of it.



Spent some time… Continue

Thanks Chuck....the book is 'The Quiet Australians Saints and Sinners' and is available in hard copy from Amazon(several have been allowed thu to Vietnam ...if addressed to a Vietnamese!!!) or on download to PC or  Kindle...the web is www.thequietaustralians.com   thanks for the interest and I trust you will 'still speak to me in the morning'. There is a chapter on the MIA situ re Australia and the US MIA brief that u gave to a group of us in Hanoi when accompanying the then Min. for Veterans Affairs back in 2003. All our 6(only) MIA's have been located and remains repatriated.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Chuck....Thanks for the reply...left Vietnam in 2000 but went back and did a heap of work 2003-2007 including 300 toilets to Long Tan village, the dental clinic and community health education...

I do not believe I wud be welcome ed back by the Vietsnamese as my book exposed the province government for their attempted graft of charity funds...also, the recipients were of northern persuasion..not a single southerner benefited...same ole same ole.

Take care and keep in touch.

Hi Chuck,

See attached for info on Seekonk.

I was with the 5th Inf Division, Quang Tri, 1971 and the 57th Trans Battalion, Da Nang, 1972.

I would like to go back to see the changes and enjoy the people and culture, I don't see it happening in the foreseeable future, but it is in my "Bucket List".

Chuck S. -

        Hope the CD brings you comfort and a little joy this Christmas Season. Its been the best therapy for me after my tour in VN and may it remind you that those of us in the States DO want to heal the wounds from our wars and keep us from making similar mistakes in the future.

      Thanks for all the hard work you do on behalf of reconciliation and ending the deadly legacies of UXO & dioxin in PRVN.

Hi Folks:   Glad to be aboard.   Though a long time Pres of Chapter 22 in Garberville, I am with all of you in spirit.   I've been back 17 times between 1988 and 2001, and really miss Viet Nam so much.   We started building medical clinics in 1988 and Sherry and I organized many medical projects and Peace Walks in VN protesting the embargo.  I'm currently working on a project to restore the famous 1958 ketch, the Golden Rule, that protested nuclear testing.   See http://www.vfpgoldenruleproject.org      Hope to make it back one more time before we go on our path.
