A rest from the battle; no rest from the war. Memories of Vietnam
For thse soldiers, ARVN and Regional Forces, there never really was any rest. The war had really begun in 1939 with the Second World War and the occupation by Japan and its subsequent fighting, sickness and famine. The war of French Indo China and then the American war or that against the Viet Cong and the North which ended in 1975. There was a rather beautiful woman who took in our laundry in Phan Thiet. Not that she did it herself. Har father had been Japanese.
