    Additional Information

    Our beloved Vietnamese war veteran may skip some tour days to rest and recharge due to old age and health issues. The family of Phan Thi Kim Phuc, known as Napalm Girl, will fill his shoes when he is unavailable. Be awe-inspired by their testimonies about Phuc surviving a napalm bomb attack where she was famously photographed fleeing her village naked at nine years old, arguably one of the crucial moments captured during the Vietnam War.
