Storyline

Since the Vietnam War, battlefield medicine and America's care of wounded warriors have changed profoundly. Illustrated with compelling documentary footage, leaders of these transformations explain why and how these changes are taking place. The film focuses on Vice Admiral John Mateczun, the man selected to lead the consolidation of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the Bethesda Naval Hospital, the crown jewels of Army and Navy medicine. The Vietnam War Memorial provides the backdrop for Adm. Mateczun's reflections on lessons he learned as an Army Explosive Ordinance Demolition specialist in that war. Change in the military's approach to rehabilitation is illustrated by how the paradigm of sports medicine is helping warriors with limb loss to overcome their handicaps. Written by Anonymous
