Chapter 9: I Love You Too Much
About a year after coming home from war, Gary returned to Viet Nam to work as a civilian. In his letters, he explained that he wanted to go back because a good job awaited him there -- a job with better pay than he could get at home. We didn’t know that Gary had fallen in love, planned to marry, and went back to Viet Nam not only to work but to join his fiancé. Gary wrote to tell us about the Vietnamese language classes he took and only now do I understand why he was determined to learn. But something happened. In his last letter before coming home, he wrote that he would love to stay and work but that a problem had presented itself that he could not solve. What this problem was and the identity of his girlfriend remains a mystery.
