Volunteer Opportunities

In snapshots snapshots snapshots the dense forests of Vietnam lie the remains of those who perished in reeducation camps. Their graves appear in the distant memories of former guards and prisoners alike. Tattered, hand-drawn maps chart the grounds of sites long abandoned and overgrown, and local residents lend knowledge and experience to the search. The Returning Casualty, a project of the Vietnamese American Foundation, is a mission to recover the remains, release them from their jungle prisons, and return them to their families for ceremonial rites and burial. It is our vision that the return of the last casualties of the wars in Vietnam will bring peace of mind to the families who suffered.

We do not charge families for our assistance. If anyone has charged you in our name, please notify us.
