In 1966, Art Peters found himself in the jungles of South Vietnam.
He was stationed in one of the northern most camps held by U.S. Army forces.
Living quarters were two soldiers to a bunker. Peters had three different bunkmates during the year he was stationed there -- each one left wounded or killed.
But, it was Peters' job to patch up those he served with. Vietnam, he contends, was a place where an Army medic could keep busy.
Then, Peters was 25 years old.
"I was an old man most of those kids were 18, 19 years old," he said.
