    One of our cardiologists is a Vietnam Vet. I knew this. He is a very quiet guy with a very dry sense of humor on the rare occasion he makes conversation. I just learned, however, that he has been twice awarded the Purple Heart for his services and another medal (I've forgotten already!).

    When he was asked on Tuesday what he thought about all of this, his reply was "I don't know....but I'm not going." Implication I got from this is that it is too horrific for him to contemplate again.

    Don't know if this really pertains or not but your question made me think of this.

    I'm sure.......he feels he did his time....and wants no more of it.

    Just a thought!

    Yeah, Rick, I agree...he did his time and my respect for him has only grown. I'm sure he is suffering nightmares at this time.
