Nu Quang - USA


Allies Once


While strolling up and down the Vietnam Wall in Washington D. C., I see amidst the crowd, an old Asian man in his sixties approaching the monument. His look is serious, his gait brisk, his back straight with chin held high. His posture and mannerism reveal to me a former high-ranking officer. I believe he is South Vietnamese and follow him with my eyes. In front of a panel, he stops.

June sun . . .
his gaze
their connection
