Over my 23 years, I have been able to chat with MANY MANY patients who were also Vets of WWII, Korea and Vietnam. I have heard stories that left me speechless. One that sticks with me, 12 years later, was a 90 year old man who had a painting of a small WWII "Tin Can" Destroyer at his house. He was in VERY VERY poor health. I asked...."Was that your ship?" He stared at it as we sat him on the stretcher and as he slowly nodded "Yes",all he said......."A crew of 390............I was one of the lucky 70."

  Over the years, I have been asked, "What do I like best about my job??"
