Doctor Jimmy Capri was anxious. Doctor Maureen "Mo" Lally had coerced him into presenting their paper at a military medical meeting in Hanoi. He feared that returning to Vietnam would unmask the post traumatic stress disorder, PTSD that he suffered from his first tour at First Marines First Medical Battalion in Da Nang and that he had managed to submerge for over thirty-five years. The memories that had lain dormant did surface, including being shot and the details of his love affair with Mai Nguyen, a nurse at WHO Children"s Hospital. What he didn't anticipate from his short stay in Vietnam, was a new love.
