On a hot summer day in 2020, we returned to Phu Tho Province to meet and collect memorabilia of veterans who fought on the battlefields of the resistance war against the US. One of the veterans was Mr. Ngo Van Dung (born in 1940), a native of Phu Nham Commune, Phu Ninh District, Phu Tho Province - was part of the generation of veterans who believed in “Putting the pen down to take the gun up”. He personally crafted and kept a special memento, a comb made from the wreckage of an American A3J (RA5C) aircraft shot down on Le Truc Street in Hanoi in 1967.
