Since there were a lot of ambushes and fights, it’s easy to see how easily the death rate could rise. Also a lot of people received the medal of Honour for fighting for the United stated in the Vietnam war, and so did Forrest. I personally think they did a great job in making these scenes, because it really shows a few things that were really part of the war and although they did let the war appear as not so serious, I do not think that this is really a bad thing because the movie’s purpose isn’t to show how serious the war was, it just a small part compared to the whole

From the minute he was diagnosed with ALS his relationship with death became stronger than ever. At first he had a rocky relationship with death as anyone would.

Angela Minor, who was an army buddy of Private Dwyer’s, described him as “a guy who would change your oil and check your tires unasked and pick you up by your broken-down car at 3 a.m.”. Another friend is Dionne Knapp, she was a single mother that was in army as well. When Ms. Knapp was called up to be deployed, Private Dwyer took her place so that she would not have to be separated from her children. This is just one of many kind acts that Joseph would do for people. As soon as Private Dwyer came home from Iraq, his friends could immediately tell that something in him had changed.
Doctors are prominent figures in many aspects of the world. They influence not only science, but history, math, art, religion, and even to politics.

Twenty years prior to the war, the first form of anesthesia was used on a patient in order to remove a tumor from their neck. The use of anesthetics was scarce, only until its use skyrocketed during the course of the Civil War. Anesthesia brought new opportunities for medical workers to use on their wounded patients. The Union and Confederate armies both benefited dramatically from the introduction of chloroform: it was non-flammable and allowed surgeons to perform various procedures on soldiers by reducing pain quickly, and
The Civil War was filled with many diseases and deaths. Over 620,000 men lost their lives during this war; roughly two thirds of the casualties were caused by the lack of medical knowledge of many diseases. The remaining one third of the casualties was from the actual battle itself. The war became a turning point for many women interested in the medical field. The knowledge of medicine was the beginning of a new age during the Civil War, and the lack of it led to many gruesome deaths.

Students and spectators from the narrow medical field were amazed that Collins had performed the surgery “without any screaming or thrashing from his patient”(Hansen, 1998).

For contemporary Americans, it’s hard to imagine a time before anesthetics and antibiotics, but for soldiers in the Civil War disease and infection were more contagious than the revolutionary ideas that initiated the
However, these precautions did not stop the spread of disease. During this epidemic, doctors diagnosed more than 9,000 cases with more than 2,400 deaths. This dreadful disease was known as poliomyelitis and was very prevalent in America during the 19th and early 20th century. Continuous epidemics in the United States, such as the one in New York City, left many people desperate for the answers on how this disease was spread and how to control it. This ultimately led to the creation of Jonas Salk’s inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) and the complete eradication
