A father, out of the blue, for OC official
The bullies made his life hell because of the father he never knew.
Those were tough years for Hugh Nguyen, living with his grandparents in Saigon, living with Vietnamese and American blood.
His father had been a U.S. serviceman, stationed in Vietnam. That man, whose name he didn’t know, had died in battle shortly after getting Nguyen’s mother pregnant — the result of a one-night liaison while he was on leave from the base in Nha Trang. That’s all Nguyen was told.
