ripples of wartime



Trung Nghia Ton was born in Australia to parents who fled Vietnam after the war. His family has roots in various parts of Vietnam, although older members of his family now living in Australia have a keen sense of having ‘lost their country’.  Trung knows the Vietnam War from a distance, through stories told within his family and also through his own studies, often from an Australian military perspective. Trung works as a medical doctor and is also a member of the Australian Army Reserve.

The thing I’ve learned is that everyone suffered. Everyone who participated in the war in some way – they all lost something.

We acknowledge that the land on which we live, and work is the  traditional land of the Kaurna people and pay our respects to their  Elders - past, present and future. Brink supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart and enshrining a Voice to Parliament in the Constitution.
