Soldiers from 1st Australian Logistic Support Group join with young children from the nearby refugee village, Nam Binh, to sing some of the traditional Christmas carols at their base at Vung Tau in an attempt to bring some peace and happiness not only to themselves, as they can't be home for Christmas, but to the people they are fighting for.
