The Wagon Wheel: A Karmic Journey of Redemption

In March 1969, in the intersection of five canals in the Mekong Delta, I helped kill seven people in three sampans by directing artillery fire on them. Under the law of war, this was justifiable homicide. Years later, I realized that my actions had violated my own moral code, and I was overcome with guilt. Thus began my karmic journey of redemption.
