My connections are huge since my grand father is Soth Phetrasy, (1915 – 2004), was a leading official of the Pathet Lao, the communist guerilla movement of Laos associated with the Lao People’s Party, during the 1960s and 1970s. Soth Phetrasy was born in 1915. Phetrasy was an important figure to the Pathet Lao (Land of Lao) as he became spokesman for them in Vientiane from 1964. He became increasingly known as he tried to negotiate POW’s between the United States and also matters such as Eugene DeBruin, and as diplomat of the Pathet Lao preparing the 1973 Vientiane Agreement.
