It is not easy to write a letter about your dead father to the president.Nancy believes that if the president knows about the sacrifice her father made when his F-100 Super Sabre crashed Nov. 2, 1969, then he’ll be thinking about him when he becomes the first sitting president to visit Laos in September.
