  1. Best to you in all these challenges! I have read one book lately abt Vietnam if you want a suggestion: The Father of All Things by Tom Bissell. I listened to the audio which influenced me a bit to not totally love it but I did learn and appreciate a LOT abt the country.

    Thank you for your recommendations for books. I will check them out. I am looking forward to this challenge but it will be difficult at the same time since I knew so many young men who were involved in this war.
