This morning, Chairman Thanh Nguyen and members of our Foundation boarded a plane for a 2 month trip to Vietnam. While overseas, they will engage in another round of remains recovery, assisting a new group of families locate and recover the remains of their relatives in the isolated jungle camps. Over the next 2 months, more of these brave family men will finally be reunited with their families and given the honorable burial they deserve.

Return to this blog in the coming weeks for specific updates from our members about their experiences and accomplishments as they travel in Vietnam.

Mission

The mission of The Returning Casualty is to bring closure and peace to the South Vietnamese people who lost relatives in the post-war re-education camps by helping them locate and recover the remains of their loved ones.
