‘The purpose of this project is to honor these fallen – not simply as soldiers, marines, airmen and seamen, but as sons, daughters, sisters and brothers – and to remind us that before they fought, they lived, and they slept, just like us, at home’ – Ashley Gilbertson

It was moving to watch the affection between Pham Minh Trieu and his daughter, Pham Thi Ngoc Minh. This quietly spoken man had been in the Army from 1950 – 1975 and was a medic during the War. He remembers hiding in underground tunnels during US Air Force bombing raids. He was based in Bà Rịa, Vũng Tàu Province, when dioxin was dropped on the area, and has strong memories of leaves falling off plants, trees dying and eating fruit from dioxin-affected regrowth. Returning to Ben Tre Provence he married and had a daughter. He blames her defects on dioxin poisoning, a direct result of his exposure during the War.
