Background Information

Dear the readers!

I was born and grew up from  VIetnam, the country being war. I had to join army of south Vietnam to fight against the Vietcong, an early terrorist. I left university and volunteered to the Policical warfare Academy from 1970, graduated and became first Lieutenant of ARVN, regular army. From 1973, I served at Ca Mau province, member of the Black Panther batallion, October 1974, i moved to Vinh Long province.

April 30, 1975, Saigon lost, I was among hundred thousands of army officer, public servant were imprisoned inti the reeducation camps of Vietcong. During being in camps, I had a secret plan for learning English. In the reeducation camp, Vietcong banmed strictly learning, speaking English, they called" Empire and counter-revolution language". If Vietcong knew, I was be killed, or any kind of torture would be. I learned English by heart after 5 years, a pocket dictionary was completed.

In 1981, I was released from the jail be serious illness, but my life had been threatened by Vietcong local government for 12 months of probation. August 1982, I escaped successful to find freedom; the first refugee camp was Pulau Bidong in Malaysia. In 1983 I resettled anew life in Australia. From October 1983, i started to write my true story:" the dark journey: inside the reeducation camps of Vietcong".

I am survivor from the hell,  9 camps of  Vietcong's reeducation camps. I would like to tell the truth about Vietnam war, no one could know about Vietnam war than the people who joined, lived in Vietnam and jailed into Vietcong reeducation camps. I took about 30 years to achieve my book, also kep a promise myself while being in the reeducation camps:" if I survive, I will write story". Thank for your reading and also shared my sorrow.
