The Vietnamese-American Peace Park project began in 1993 as the work of two veterans, Mike Boehm of Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin who served from January 1968 through August 1969 in the U.S. Army in Vietnam, and Nguyen Ngoc Hung, of Hanoi, VietNam, who served from 1969 to 1975 in the North Vietnamese army during the war.
This project was conceived by the late Lewis B. Puller, Jr, as a way to speed the reconciliation between America and Vietnam. The focus of the project is the building of schools in the former South Vietnam. The first school, in Dong Ha, was just completed and dedicated. Terry Anderson provided the pictures and information in this gallery.
