Hello 6/31st!

Well, tomorrow my wife and I will be returning to "the world" after 6 months in Vietnam visiting her family in her village of Vinh Kim (near Dong Tam). This year we spent almost 2 weeks touring up north, and for the first time, I saw several Vietnam Vet tour groups. It appears as though more Vietnam vets are deciding to return for a visit while they are still young enough and healthy enough to do it.

Several of my Delta Company Brothers have contacted me with thoughts of making a trip back, and with questions concerning places to visit, costs, etc. This got me to thinking that there might be others of our 6/31st Brothers who might also be considering a trip, but who might be hesitant due to lack of information or other various concerns.

Over the last 16 years of my returning to Vietnam, my wife and I have covered most of the "tourist" attractions from Sapa in the North, Hue in the Central, and Phu Quoc Island in the South. In addition, in 2011, I made a tour of most of our old Fire Bases locations, via the back of my step-son's motorbike. Therefore, if you are interested in a return visit, I will be more than happy to provide you with any information (to include pictures) that I can provide....and...if you happen to be in Vietnam while we are here, we would be proud to invite you to our house for dinner.

Take Care My Brothers
