July Breakfast Connection

July 12, 2018 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am


Please join us for our July Breakfast Connection which will feature Houston author, retired urologist, and Vietnam War veteran, Samuel D. Axelrad, M.D.  Dr. Axelrad recently published his memoir entitled Peaceful Bones, based on the true story of his experience as a Vietnam War army surgeon where he finds himself helping not only American soldiers, but hundreds of Vietnamese citizens, both wounded and ill.

Peaceful Bones is about one special patient named Hung Nguyen, aka “Charlie”, who becomes an unlikely friend on the battlefield. Dr. Axelrad saves Charlie’s life, forging a bond that crosses cultural and enemy lines. Their reunion, 46 years after losing touch in 1967, was a moving and inspiring moment that made history around the world. Peaceful Bones is Dr. Axelrad’s stories of the war, his life, and the uncanny “coincidences” that brought him and Charlie together twice in one lifetime over several decades and thousands of miles.

Dr. Axelrad was recently featured on the cover of the Houston Chronicle, KPRC’s Houston Life, and the story of his reunion made headlines on BBC, Yahoo News, and the Associated Press.
