WATCH: Peace Meals – American And Vietnamese Veteran Share Their Stories Over Dinner

The goal of the program is to help build bridges between Veterans and immigrant communities and to shed light on the nature of citizenship, assimilation, and what it means to be an American.

The concept is simple: bring together a Vietnam veteran and a Vietnamese refugee who immigrated to the US after the war for a simple meal, and see where the conversation leads. Then do the same with a 2nd generation immigrant and child of a veteran. The goal of the program is to help build bridges between Veterans and immigrant communities – who have sometimes had trouble connecting – and to shed light on the nature of citizenship, assimilation, and what it means to be an American.
