Immigrants from all over the world came to the United States to chase The American Dream. Some strive for freedom, some for wealth, and some desire to integrate into the American mainstream by joining the world's finest military. A Vietnamese American manicurist was one of them. He proudly serves the United States Navy. His story inspires many Asian young people to join the U.S. Armed Forces and pay back to the land that provides their families with hope, faith and happiness.
