Like the Iraq and Afghan wars today, the Vietnam War tore at the bodies and souls of those who served, particularly those who lost multiple limbs and returned home to face a different battle: acceptance. In How Can You Mend This Purple Heart the searing story of their physical and emotional struggles is told through the eyes of a shame-ridden non-combatant convalescing in their midst.
