Missing Arm


In this January 1967 photo released by Sam Axelrad, Dr. Sam Axelrad, left, displays the bones of an arm he amputated from North Vietnamese soldier Nguyen Quang Hung, right, in October 1966 in front of his military clinic in Phu Cat District in central coastal province of Binh Dinh in the former South Vietnam after Hung was shot by American troops near Hung's hometown of An Khe. On Monday, July 1, 2013 the Houston urologist met Hung at his home to return to bones. The two veterans were reunited after a Vietnamese journalist wrote an article last year about Axelrad's search for Hung, prompting Hung's brother to contact the newspaper.
