Update #26

A Luoi to Da Nang

2 comments

We had the good fortune to spend an evening in the town of A Luoi.  While there we interviewed Suel Jones, a twice-wounded marine who has been coming back to Vietnam since 1998 and now splits his year between Alaska and Da Nang.  Suel grew up in Kerville, Texas, just a piece up the road from where I grew up and he's got more stories than Carter has little pills.  Sorry...I'm waxing Texan.  Suel's story is too long to tell here, but to give you some idea, when we visited the embassy in Hanoi Suel had no problem yelling at the team of diplomats about the anemic response of the State Department and the United States Government to the devastation caused by our wanton use of dioxin-laced herbicides during the war.  The video below has nothing to do with that except that we were driving through beautiful mountainous jungle (tremendous amounts of triple-canopy jungle were destroyed by agent orange and other toxic herbicides) when...the bus overheated.  The one upside?  I was able to get out and shoot a little video:

      thanks for posting the video, it gives one a good idea of the location and the loss from agent orange.
