Vietnamese war veterans helped Australia find its last six soldiers missing in action. Putting past resentments aside, two former Australian soldiers now aim to return the favour in Operation Wandering Souls.

In a country where most families lost someone during the war, the enduring grief for many Vietnamese is not knowing where their loved ones had fallen.
