Organized by: Richard Villarreal

I am a 72 year old Vietnam Veteran and I served for the U.S. Air Force from Oct 1963 to Oct 1967. I am trying to save enough funds to make a return trip to Plekiu Vietnam. I would want to revisit the town of Pleiku and help some of the poorest people in Plekiu,Wile I was stationed then ,the town families were so very nice ,helpful, and very grateful that we were there to support and make their lives a reality to freedom. I was married with two children when I arrived in Vietnam and I was welcomed with open arms and treated like royality ,which made my 363 days there much easier to complete my mission that I was assigned. I was invited to these peoples humble homes many just huts made of strawand mud and even though they did not have much ,I was invited every week to their homes to join them and share their food and housepitatily. This housepitality made my stay and being away from my family a blessing. I never forgot how well I was treated,therefore my wanting to go back and help in some way. I also never forgot how bad I was treated on my return back to America,I volunteered to serve four years and will never regret one minute of giving my service to my Country.I am on Social security and with your assistance I can give back.Thank you
