Service and Sacrifice with John Becker - Facing Ghosts: Return to Vietnam
Facing Ghosts - Return to Vietnam
Vietnam veterans from East Tennessee headed back to Southeast Asia for the first time since the war ended. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine veterans, two dozen in all, signed up to revisit the jungles and cities where they fought 50 years ago.

Their 9,000 mile trip included a range of discoveries, connections, and emotions.

The journey helped some veterans face the ghosts of war that have haunted them for decades.

Our coverage includes interviews with veterans about their reason for going before their departure. We also kept a visual travel log of each day in a "dispatch" report. And in the coming weeks we will feature individual stories of veterans and their experience back to Vietnam. For more information email John Becker directly at
