Extreme Makeover: Navy Edition

Here's a cool story (with nice photo):
DANANG, Vietnam – On the day his side lost the Vietnam War, Hung Ba Le fled his homeland at the age of 5 in a fishing trawler crammed with 400 refugees. Thirty-four years later, he made an unlikely homecoming — as the commander of a U.S. Navy destroyer.
It's called the American Dream, to start literally from nothing and then to make something of yourself through dedication and hard work. I been there!

Here's a nice little detail too: Le's father had been a commander in the South Vietnamese Navy.
