My father fought in Vietnam from 1969-1970 as part of the 101st Airborne (of Band of Brothers fame).  This past weekend, my parents joined a group of men who were in that battle as they visited the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C.  A filmmaker joined them on their trip.  My dad was part of D 2-506.
