Lost & Found playlist for 5/26/16

A special 'Fixin'-To-Die Rag' look at the Vietnam War on this Memorial Day weekend

The book I mentioned. The Sympathizer: A Novel by Viet Thanh Nguyen

This is Viet Thanh Nguyen's newest work. It is a book about the legacy and memory of the war.

The documentary I mentioned was My Father's Vietnam.

The John Kerry, Bob Kerrey, and John McCain editorial I discussed is here.

An amazing article about US vets moving to Vietnam at the end of their lives from the BBC. "I know this is where I have to be - the war is over, and I will die here" - David Edward Clark, Veteran
