Dr. Ben Carson Visits Ambassador Book Signing

posted on

Our sincere thanks to Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson for taking the time to visit with Ambassador author Chuck Doan recently during his book signing of his newly released memoir Sand in Their Eyes. In his official statement released this week Dr. Carson said, “We must not depart from our goals to restore what God and our Founders intended for this exceptional nation.

Ben CarsonAs a refugee from Vietnam Chuck Doan came to America because it truly was a place that offered a freedom he couldn’t experience in Vietnam. As a teenager in the 1980s Doan embarked on a two-year journey to escape communist Vietnam. Facing imprisonment, starvation and extreme poverty, Chuck and his family must escape communist Vietnam or die in the attempt. His new book “Sand in Their Eyes” is the incredible true story of his search for freedom.

Packed in a tiny boat, hoping to escape Vietnam Chuck and his family battled starvation, dehydration and crippling fear night after night. “No food. No water. Just salt. That’s all we had left: Sand in Their Eyesthe breath in our lungs and the salt on our skin,” writes Chuck.

Finally they encountered some fishermen who gave them food and water, but would not take them to the safety of Thailand because the country was no longer welcoming refugees. Even after their tiny boat made it to the shore of Thailand, armed officers forced them back out into the water leaving them with only one option: sink their boat and swim back to shore in the dead of night.
