Mr. 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.
