US army doctor returns arm to Vietnamese soldier fifty years after he took it as a souvenir.
there are so many intersecting levels of fucked up here
That has to be the most forgiving man in history.
Here is the full story and not the sensationalized version: Nguyen Quang Hung was shot in the arm, taken in by American forces (different from the one who shot him) and Sam Axelrad saved his life by amputating the infected arm. His colleagues took the bones from the amputated arm and made them into the thing you see in the picture to remind Axelrad of a good deed done.
Years later, Axelrad finds the bones in his closet and wanted to reunite them with the original owner. So he goes over to Vietnam and goes on a country-wide search for Hung, not even knowing if Hung was still alive. His story gets picked up by a major newspaper and long story short Axelrad was able to return the bones to Hung and the two shared war stories. (x)
Hung has nothing to forgive Axelrad for: he did nothing wrong and in fact saved Hung’s life. The bone thing is odd, definitely, but considering that most amputated limbs end up incinerated this entire story works out in Hung’s favor.
This isn’t sensational or show how awful the American soldiers were. It is kinda a sweet story.
This reminds me of that SJW post where they showed two white men holding a bloodied black man in a grayscale photo. The photo was from the 50s or 60s I believe and was part of a visual thread depicting and claiming white people being evil or something of that nature.
OP who posted and the people who commented didn’t realize that the photo was from an issue of Time [maybe LIFE?] and those two white demons? They were protecting the man from lynchers and trying to get him to safety…
Sometimes I really hate tumblr. Many posts are yellow journalism at its finest.
That is a massive man and a fearless dog!
