A Late Night Secret Mission on the Phong Hoa Canal

1/3/70

Amb. Quinn was invited to join his military counterpart on a “secret mission” late at night in 1970. On the boat trip down the Mekong River, he recalls wondering if it would involve some type of clandestine meeting affecting the insurgency. It turned out, however, that it involved a most unusual gastronomical experience.
