Frederic Whitehurst on "Last Night I Dreamed of Peace"

October 5, 2008

In 1969, Frederic Whitehurst was in Viet Nam, burning captured enemy documents. He tells Anne Strainchamps that he saved the diary of a young woman, and many years later returned it to her mother. The diary has been published now as a book called "Last Night I Dreamed of Peace." Whitehurst tells Anne that Vietnamese family has become his own, and we hear excerpts from the diary.
