Vietnamese veterans of the war with the U.S. embrace an attitude of reconciliation and mutual respect, members of U.S. veterans who visited Vietnam reported. But unexploded land mines are "a contionuing disastger," said delegation leader retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey.
McCaffrey and Jan Scruggs, president of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, headed the 26-member delegation that included U.S. Vietnam veterans and their families. They reported on the trip at a Feb. 26 Newsmaker.
"It's time to heal the scars of war. It is time for reconciliation,” McCaffrrey said.
