Dear Family and Friends- Join us as we take a spritual and healing journey to Vietnam. Ed is a Vietnam Veteran, who served two tours of duty with the United States Navy Seabees. This is his first opportunity to return to the area where he served in 1968 and 1969. Harvest is the daughter of a serviceman killed during the Vietnam War. This trip takes her to the areas where her father was stationed. In an emotional journey, she visits the site where he was killed.
Ed and Harvest are part of a historic journey sponsored by Sons and Daughters In Touch, an organization comprised of the children of servicemen killed in the Vietnam War. The group traveling to Vietnam includes children, widows and other relatives of servicemen who gave the ultimate sacrifice, as well as veterans and local Vietnamese guides. The trip was organized by Global Spectrum, a travel agency that specializes in tours for veterans returning to Southeast Asia.
The trip is one that has not been attempted before. The group will tour the country from Saigon (Ho Chi Mihn City) to Hanoi. In addition to touring as a group, "teams" will spread out and visit the specific areas where each serviceman represented lost his life or each veteran served. The goal of the trip is to get each member of the team as close as possible to their particular "site". Many hours of research and travel were done prior to the trip to insure that each site is located. Ed and Harvest are on the Purple Team, which will tour the area of the Southern I Corps.
