dc.description.abstract The war against the United States in Vietnam has moved from being a nightmare to a memory for the Vietnamese. In the U.S. there is still a division between those who thought the war justified and those who were against it. War memorials in both countries reflect these facts. Many veterans of the war were greatly damaged by it physically and mentally. Many go to Vietnam to help with its rebuilding. The government of the United States has not dealt adequately with it. The model of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission with its ideas of openness, forgiveness and restorative justice should help here and be a model for the World. en_US
