On March 16, 1968 a US Army company entered the series of villages known as My Lai and killed between 300 – 500 people, mostly women and children, many were lined up and shot in ditches. The My Lai Project (funded through Madison Friends) bankrolls a revolving loan fund to improve future economic possibilities for the citizens of My Lai, and is building a Peace Park, and school. The Library of Vietnam Project builds and stocks libraries throughout a country which has seen it9s population tripple since 1975.
