Jon Christensen’s tour of duty in Vietnam featured several roles. His unit coordinated the distribution of thousands of tons of supplies from ports near Saigon to every corner of the country. He rode shotgun on supply truck convoys. And he survived perhaps the most famous enemy uprising of the war, the 1968 Tet offensive.
Christensen arrived home bearing the weight of anger and confusion. The absence of anyone with whom he could share his experiences amplified his anguish. Still, Jon persevered.
Ultimately, his longing for healthy connections and ardent desire to reach out to veterans, led him to a lifelong career of helping others.
