Carl W. Cole and Patti Mears
The goddess Thien Hau is the protector of those who go to the sea.
When I visited this temple in Cho Lon, I burned a
large sandalwood coil
all who went to sea in the war:   - our shipmates and the Vietnamese POWs -
and for all who suffered in the war: killed, captured, maimed, wounded,
widowed, orphaned, or simply troubled by their experiences.
