We connect sons and daughters who lost fathers
on opposite sides of the Vietnam War.
The 2 Sides Project was founded in March 2015 by Margot Carlson Delogne. Her father, Air Force
Captain John W. Carlson, was killed in action near Bien Hoa in 1966.
First, six of us went to Vietnam to meet with 20+ Vietnamese whose fathers died fighting on the other side.
Now we're a nonprofit with the goal to connect even more people similarly affected by the
Vietnam/American War, and eventually by more recent wars. And in 2018, eight Americans will return to Vietnam to meet more sons and daughters from the Vietnamese side.
We know that facing the other side and our own fears leads to more understanding, and lasting healing.
We discovered that when we came together in Vietnam.
Here are our stories.
