Massacre at Hanh Tin Tay Village

Our first stop in Quang Ngai province was to the cemetary of this village, where, according to our partners, American soldiers killed 63 women, children, and old men in 1969. Two survivors still live in the village, one of whom we later met. I have to say that we burned incense on demand, without a chance for was as if we had commemorated something we hadn't yet absorbed. However, by the end of the two days, we began to have an inkling of the enormous cost of war.
