I'm afraid that both you and your mother would have been worried for not hearing from me in these past weeks. But my situation here has become a difficult one. I've been officially accused of murder by the army.
The alleged victims were four Vietnamese double agents. We spent months uncovering and acumalating evidence. When absolute proof was completed, we acted, we acted like soldiers.
The charges are unjustified. They are in fact, under the circumstances of this conflict, quite completely insane.
In a war there are many moments for compassion and tender action. There are many moments for ruthless action, for what is often called ruthless.
But in many circumstances, the only clarity is seeing clearly what there is to be done and do it directly, quickly, awake... looking at it.
I would trust you to tell your mother what you choose about this letter.
As for the charges, I'm unconcerned.
I'm beyond their lying morality.
And so, I'm beyond caring.
You have all my faith.
Your loving father."
