        Was in KOREA and VIETNAM War theater, of course.

        My surgery attending/instructor in medical school, Dr. Roberts,  was known by friends of ours (one was rescuse pilot , wife a nurse) to have been the HEAD of MEDICINE in Vietnam theater.

        He was a FAN!! of Medical helicopters for saving lives. When he came back to Ohio he was frustrated by it taking 2-3 hours to get patients to the ER via ambulance.  

        He is one who started Medivac helicopters in the US, and they have saved countless lives.
