I was privileged to witness an incredibly special event today and just have to share it with some vets who will appreciate it. I'm not sure it will be topped and is likely the highlight of my VA clinical career. After staffing some cases, a colleague and I thought that it was possible that there were two vets who likely knew each other from Vietnam. In hearing their experiences in the Vietnam theater we thought their paths had crossed in a big way. We got permission from each of them to meet and arranged for their getting together. One had been a severely wounded POW and was later rescued by a special ops team. The other guy was...you guessed it...a medic in special ops team who helped rescued a group of POWs. As it turns out he was THE medic who patched this ex-POW up and stuck with him through the process of escape and evasion. Incredible!!! The guys could barely speak because of the emotions and tears. For that matter, I couldn't speak either. We were all very emotional and crying. Witnessing a reunion so special was just about too much to handle. I will never forget this momentous occasion. What a wonderful event. As for their treatment...WOW, I don't think it gets much better for some seriously needed healing. apup Edited to add: Oh, I forgot to mention that these guys hadn't seen each other since the extraction. They had both thought the other dead but didn't know the name of the other to confirm.
