A few years ago, I received a letter that was a kind of survey for children of veterans who fought in the Vietnam War. It is because my father is a Vietnam veteran. While I opened it with curiosity, I lost my interest in it due to the bland questions, which asked about my physical condition. However, regardless of its purpose, it reminded me of my father's life in his youth and I felt that my life has been related to Korean modern history. His war experience was not important for me, but it was the fact that I could not deny.

I believe that his participation in the Vietnam War was a blue print for his future with regard to both national and private causes. What does it mean to me? How much distinction between his and my generation does it exist? I intend to answer this confusing and strange questions by changing the survey to the blue print works.
