Interesting Things about Yourself: I'm a daughter of a Vietnam vet and have always wondered what his time was like there.

Mr. Church ~ I believe I'm the daughter of the Thomas R. Swenson you mention in your post. My dad's name was Thomas R. Swenson, he was from Tanana, AK. and was in Vietnam in the late 60's. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1989. I was excited to see this website because I know nothing about my dad's time in Vietnam.

Take care,
