The sound of letting go


It’s been 39 years since the war left Vietnam.
That’s almost four decades of feverish nightmares. Four decades spent battling demons. Four decades of unanswered questions.
The men who returned from battle, the men who came home to another kind of war and the men who had to rebuild a nation have spent their lives listening to thoughts and memories that will never go away.
On the eve of the fourth decade since foreign boots left Vietnamese soil, this is the sound of letting go.
Nikki Keating has that story.
