Dr. Sam Axelrad shows the bones of an arm he amputated in 1966 in former South Vietnam, during a news conference in Hanoi, Vietnam on Sunday, June 30, 2013. On Monday the Houston urologist was traveling to meet the amputee, Nguyen Quang Hung. Axelrad, 74, amputated Hung's infected arm in October 1966 in a U.S. military hospital after Hung was shot by American troops near Hung's hometown of An Khe. The two veterans were reunited after a Vietnamese journalist wrote an article last year about Axelrad's search for Hung, prompting Hung's brother to contact the newspaper. (AP photo/Mike Ives) less
