Yes, Veteran’s day – and Vietnam both have a lot of special meaning to so many American Servicemen, and Vietnamese servicemen as well, who served there during the war. This will be a very impactful trip as we anticipate teaching the poor villagers how to construct water filters and solar stoves and also help English learners practice speaking. The second week will be low-key, focusing on understanding both the remote and recent history of this area.

- We will be traveling to this area to assist some of the devastated areas that lost so much in the 2012 Tsunami.

We will be traveling to the same regions and slowly establishing relationships with villagers and we will be offering a helping hand in any way that we can while we are there. The incredibly rich history in Japan is beyond captivating and we will be sure to take in as much as we can as tourists as well!
