Story of KG 0213

map to freedom

My name is David Truong and I am a son of a refugee. My father passed away when I was very little so I do not know much. Recently I uncovered an old certificate of his.

All I know was that he never talked much about his experience in Bi Dong, but his family was split up during the War. He, his step mother, and half brother were at Bi Dong, and his other siblings were spread out all over Asia. His step mother died there and he had to bury her I believe.

If you have any information of people who know my father, please give them my email. I would love to hear any stories about an English teacher named Truong Van Sanh. But he might have also gone by the name Quang.

I also hope this certificate is helpful for your website/research.
