ROCHESTER, Minn. - Dr. James Donadio Jr. from Mayo Clinic was drafted into the Vietnam War in 1966. He was sent to supervise the renal intensive care unit. Now a retired Nephrologist, Dr. Donadio wrote a book about his time during the war called, 'From Mayo Clinic to Vietnam.'
On Thursday, he's having a book signing. Aaron Saterdalen said Dr. Donadio will be sharing his experiences, answering questions and telling his story of what it's like to be a physician serving in the war.
"I'm actually looking forward to hearing more of his time in Vietnam and some of his personal experiences that he had interacting with not only the military side of his time in Vietnam, but also that culture - the people that he interacted with while he was there."
The talk starts at 7 p.m. at the History Center of Olmsted County. It's open to the public, with non-members paying a fee of $5.
