Believe me, when my friend who fought in Vietnam, 67'-68' told me he bought 10 acres of land and had a 3,000 sq ft house built on it in Vietnam...total cost $52,000 and was moving there I just about shit. He then told me several of his buddies he served with did the same thing as well as many more. My friend said the country of Vietnam is a damn paradise, and the people have no issue with Americans, they actually like us. However I still found it weird because of what he experienced. My friend said he left a piece of himself there and never felt right living back in America, that he felt all kinds of emotions including a strong sense of guilt which he no longer has since he has called Vietnam home. The real kicker is his best friend is a former NVA soldier.

This just blows my mind.

I'm glad your friend was able to make his peace with his war experiences and the Vietnamese people.
