The doctors and nurses of the 93rd Evacuation Hospital, in Vietnam, saved the lives of hundreds of severely wounded soldiers. Day after day, helicopter after helicopter, they bravely and diligently made every effort possible to keep the broken, torn, and bleeding American Soldiers alive. Often at the expense of their own mental and physical health. The Brooke General Army Hospital in San Antonio, Texas received hundreds of these wounded and broken men and, through a persistent, measured, program of medical excellence, they helped thousands of broken and torn soldiers reenter life. There were many wounds coming out of Vietnam and many wards dedicated to specific types of wounds. 43C was the amputee ward. The patients, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, orderlies and other medical staff in this book are characters modeled after real people, in real situations. The names and some details have been changed so that person can be recognized. Fiction is also part of this book and some characters and situations have been created. This historical-fiction book is dedicated to the men and women who, in 14 months, helped the author, an amputee with many broken bones and other wounds, walk out to the hospital parking lot and drive himself back into life.
