Diary Returned

Three women await a ceremony to hand over personal documents including a frayed diary of Vu Dinh Doan, a Northern Vietnamese soldier killed during the Vietnam War, to his family in the northern province of Hai Duong on Sept. 21, 2012. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had returned the diary to Hanoi earlier in the year, 46 years after the soldier was killed in action in Southern Vietnam.
