Air Force Staff Sgt. Eric Gargus, a 18th Civil Engineer Squadron structural craftsman learned of an upcoming trip to Thailand to make a difference in the lives of children who have been taken off the streets, living in homes supported by the organization Remember Nhu.

“Remember Nhu deals with the prevention of human trafficking, and they have scores of kids to care for,” said Air Force Chaplain (Capt.) Daniel Call.

After learning all that he could about Nhu and the organization, Gargus reached out to a member of the Kadena chapel’s youth ministry. They began discussing ideas for a new playground to be built on the grounds of homes in northern Thailand. Talk became action, and before long, the plans were drawn and the trip was underway.
