In response to your request for collaborators on your project about Vietnamese
Amerasians, I may be able to provide you with some interview subjects and some
production/scriptwriting/research ideas.
 
I happen to have a friend who is a child of an American soldier father and a
Vietnamese native mother (she actually spent the first 3 or 4 years of her life
in Vietnam, because her father was not permitted to return for several years to
take his wife and child back to the U.S. with him -- her story is somewhat
reminiscent of the central theme of "Miss Saigon" in fact).
 
Call me at (301) 986-0444 Ext. 5839 or e-mail me at "[log in to unmask]"
 
I live in the Washington, D.C. area and work at The Discovery Channel.
 
Take care.

P.S.  Please provide me your direct e-mail address so that I don't clutter up
the "list" with this type of response in the future.  Thanks.
