Event description

Description

Trauma and Tenacity in Vietnam: A Surgeon's Story, is the compelling account of a young surgeon’s unique Vietnam War deployment. The author, a news correspondent and college professor, Dr. Mary Jane Ingui, conducted extensive research to bring the experiences of Capt. Sheldon Kushner, M.D., to life. Dr. Kushner is a native Alabamian who now lives in the Mobile area, grew up in Montgomery in the home once owned by F. Scott Fitzgerald and studied medicine at the University of Alabama Medical School.

What is singular about Dr. Kushner’s experiences is that he used his medical skills to care for wounded Vietnamese civilians. Dr. Kushner effectively participated in an effort by our government to showcase America’s compassion and win the hearts and minds of the South Vietnamese people by improving their health conditions.
