Boy of Vietnam

"I was ambivalent about going to Vietnam. Henry, my childhood buddy down the street was drafted six months ago, to his parents' surprise. I wanted to go to join the buddies I knew as a child. It was my first time to ride an airplane, so the excitement was building up. We finally arrived in Hanoi and the weather was warm and humid...but the men did not complain. Thankfully the noisy fan at the barracks provided some relief. And yes... I am proud of my barracks-made PEACE poster. Postcript: I learned that Henry was killed in an ambush. He was just 18."

My Little Japanese Doll...

"It was a cool spring day and the cherry blossoms were at their most intense pink flowers that I took little Miku for a stroll at the park. He wore his new silk kimono that mother made and he looked simply adorable. How I wished his Papa can see him. But he has left home for war. Miku and I do miss him a lot."
