An Expression of Gratitude

Chapter member Mark Miller brought a painting to a recent meeting to share with the group. Unrolling the canvas secured with a piece of tape, he revealed the depiction of a peaceful street scene in Vietnam. The painting had been presented to him by at a Ranger Reunion in 2009 at Fort Benning by Trinh, a former Vietnamese interpreter for their LRRP Ranger company. Trinh and his wife had been trapped in Vietnam after the war. The company banded together to raise funds and sponsored them, which enabled the couple to leave the country. It was years later that Trinh presented the painting to Mark, who had been Team Leader.
