    I am very sorry for your loss. But among all the memories about your grandfather, you chose to share the bit he fought for the south back in Vietnam & being a victim??? We people in Vietnam have moved on but it looks like the people who betrayed our land couldn’t. Stop vandalizing Vietnam with this nonsense.

    Completely held ransom by a paycheque. How horrible. I am so sorry for the loss of your Grandpa. Keep this in your mind as you go forward. Try to initiate change for other Grandpa’s in the world. Love and hugs to you
