Returned in 1989 with five other Marines for 2 weeks to Viet Nam. Traveled from Hanoi to Sigon, then up route 9 to Khe Sanh & Con Thien. When we returned home we brought together a family that had been seperated by the fall of Sigion in 1975. They had not seen their 6 month old baby for 12 years.

In 1992 went to Russia to work with their Afgan Vets on PTSD. I spent 14 days in Moscow and surronding towns. These are stong people, I enjoyed every moment with them.
