As many commented on the New York Times website, this is indeed a great result for your efforts, Olga. Congratulations to you and those that helped you.
Interesting that the two families that were connected 40 years ago over in Nam and weren't really aware of it are now reconnected. Maybe this time the connection will never be broken.
On the other hand, as long as you had those albums, Olga, I guess the connection was never really broken, right?
Anyway, very glad to hear your efforts bore fruit. Good work!
By the way, what clinched the deal? Who read or heard what and where? Was it the New York Times that did the trick? And he was in Florida, right? Kind of far away from New York, eh? Closer to you than you thought.
Freedom isn't free!
