Prove My Soul: Another Side to the Vietnam War (Paperback)
From 1966-1967, Brian M. Biggs served a unique tour of duty in Vietnam as a Marine Civic Action Officer, an assignment that included teaching English to elementary school teachers in the village of Hoa My--a life-changing experience that developed cherished friendships which have lasted to this day.
"For me," he writes, "it was a meal of Bun Bo soup served on the school desks of Hoa My Elementary School that swept the Vietnamese teachers into my heart and mind." His three return trips to Vietnam in 2001, 2004, and 2006, allowed those friendships to flourish.
Those visits also unraveled a mystery born out of the chaos and confusion that was the Vietnam War. A mystery that mistakenly cast him as a spy for the South Vietnamese government and brought to light the role he played in the fate of one of the teachers suspected of being Vietcong.
