Along a lonely road strewn with drying rice, Vietnam veteran Michael Liscio halted as he reached the fishing village of My Lai, the one stop he felt he had to make. He had been warned he would not be welcome in the place where U. S. soldiers had massacred hundreds of men, women and children 27 years ago. But the visitor from Sherman Oaks had come too far--halfway into a 1,300-mile marathon run through Vietnam--to turn back. He ran on.

Draped in banners and clutching a host of Vietnamese flags, Tran Duc Loi, 21, earnestly repeated his mantra to anyone who would listen: "We will win. We will win." If there is a national religion here in this Communist state, it might well be soccer. And die-hard fans are in the throes of ecstasy as opening ceremonies begin today for the Tiger Cup, the biennial two-week soccer championship for Southeast Asian countries. T-shirts and sports banners are flying out of stores.

Thirty years ago, Michael Liscio was among the first U. S. sailors shipped off to fight in the Vietnam War. Tuesday, as a celebration of peace 20 years after the United States withdrew its last troops from Saigon, the 51-year-old Sherman Oaks actor and theater owner returns to Hanoi for the run of his life. Stationed first in Da Nang, then Saigon, Liscio was taken by the ironic beauty of Vietnam among what he calls the Angst and chaos of more than 400 years of war.

Just as a Ping-Pong match two decades ago provided the diplomatic pretext for improved relations between the United States and China, the Asian Games in Beijing appear to have set the seal on improved ties between China and Vietnam. Vietnam sent its aging hero of two wars against the French and Americans, Deputy Premier Vo Nguyen Giap, to attend the games, which end Sunday. He was the first Vietnamese leader to make an official visit to China in more than a decade.
