Some years ago, I wrote about an organization in Thailand that worked with the underground church to get our lost American soldiers out of Vietnam. They were left behind when the last helicopters pulled out of Saigon and the US ended their participation in the war. Those left behind had no way of getting out of those Asian countries. There was no embassy to flee to for sanctuary and no American military bases. Approximately 2,700,000 American men and women served in Vietnam. As of February 7, 2020, there were still 1,587 military personnel not accounted for. Whether that organization is still there, I don’t know. I just felt I wanted to tell the amazing story of what they did. The book was really incomplete. So much history of the era was left out. So, with the help of the person who edited my nine historical novels, we are undertaking a re-write of the book. It is turning out to be a major undertaking, but since I enjoy research, it is interesting to learn so much more about the war and the events that took place at that same time; The Kent State incident; the Hippie movement; the Jesus Revolution; draft dodgers who fled to Canada and other incidents. Also, surprisingly, who was behind the continuation of the war (20 years!) The book is tentatively titled Road to Mercy. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
