Abstract: In this article we highlight the reminiscence of a distinguished Veteran of the Vietnam War. The narrative describes his wartime service in Vietnam and the legacy of these experiences across his military career and subsequent civilian life. The individual profiled is not intended to represent all Veterans who served in the Vietnam War. In fact, this is a very unique individual; a highly educated, career officer and committed Catholic who served in various roles within the United States Army Medical Department. This narrative represents memories and reflections from his military career and in his subsequent post-military civilian life.
