When the United States lifted the trade embargo and normalized diplomatic relations, your officials promised great improvements in accounting for missing Americans. The United States has invested heavily in your country, provided significant levels of aid, bilaterally and multi-laterally, supported your counter-narcotics efforts, helped your government fight against AIDS, assisted in removing unexploded ordnance, provided information from US archives on Vietnamese casualties, even allowing Vietnamese officials to conduct research in US archives. Yet, Vietnam has closed several central provinces to our field recovery teams, delayed agreement for a US Navy ship to recover remains of Americans along your country's coastline, continued to withhold relevant documents, and denied US researchers access to your government's archives to help account for our POW/MIAs in your country and along border areas of Laos and Cambodia.
We, the undersigned Americans - concerned citizens, family members and veterans - implore you to move beyond incremental agreements and implement concrete programs now to take the steps defined by President Bush to achieve the fullest possible accounting. To do less will jeopardize our improved bilateral relationship and is not in the interest of the people of Vietnam.
AMERICA RAISED THEM...
AMERICA SENT THEM.
