Stories from Third Med:  Surviving a Jungle ER

Forty years after the Tet Offensive and Khe Sahn, the Navy doctors and corpsmen describe the wounds they treated, the conditions they worked in, and their most unforgettable memories —- a Bob Edwards Show tribute to the men and women wounded or killed in service.

The Navy’s Third Medical Battalion was assigned to treat the Marine’s Third Division in the Northernmost part of South Vietnam, closest to enemy territory during one of our nation’s deadliest wars. The battalion treated thousands of men in Vietnam, but those stories have never been recorded for broadcast. Bob Edwards Show producer Ariana Pekary attended the 40th Anniversary Reunion of the Third Medical Battalion in Charleston, South Carolina on May 2nd and 3rd, 2008 to capture the stories and the spirit of these unsung heroes.
