Frederick Downs, author of No Longer Enemies, Not Yet Friends: An American Soldier Returns to Vietnam and director of the prosthetic and sensory aids service for the Veterans' Administration talked about his experiences during the Vietnam War and his subsequent return to that country, between 1987 and 1989, as part of the Vessey Mission on Humanitarian aid. He said, “I really hated the Vietnamese until 1987 when General Vessey chose me to be a member of his humanitarian team.” Mr. Downs lost his left arm in battle in Vietnam and was decorated with the Purple Heart four times. He has written other books about his experiences during the war and in hospitals after his injury. close
