Vietnam, Long Time Coming

Vietnam, Long Time Coming
1:55:53 | 1998

Categories: Documentary, Sports, Festivals, History

In 1998, World T.E.A.M. Sports (The Exceptional Athlete Matters) organized a 16-day, 1,200 mile bicycle ride through once war-torn Vietnam. Able-bodied and disabled veterans, from the U.S. and Vietnam, travel across a landscape where they once killed to stay alive. The former enemies ride as one team, joined by well-known rider Greg LaMonde and Senator John Kerry, in an emotional journey of peace, reconciliation, and athletic achievement. The biggest handicaps turn out to be the ghosts of the past, with their nagging reminders of conflict, injury and loss.

as a former medic in VietNam, I salute all these folks. I was there in 1972. I laughed and cried while I watched this video.....but it felt good to see both sides helping each other. Why was the war fought in the first place? Why couldn't they just fast forward , instead of fighting and killing one another? keep smiling. ----olehippy13
