An interview with Ronald J. Glasser, former military physician, pediatric nephrologist, and author of Wounded: Vietnam to Iraq.

Dr. Ronald Glasser discusses the horrors endured daily by the troops on the ground in Iraq. His new book is a followup to his earlier bestselling book 365 Days, which chronicled his tour of duty as an Army doctor during the Vietnam War. Dr. Glasser compares the U.S. military engagement in Vietnam to the current involvement in Iraq, drawing significant and frightening parallels.
