It was May 18th, 1969, six months and a day into Steve Tice's tour of duty with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam. The battle for Hamburger Hill was an especially ugly moment in the Vietnam War. A rocket-propelled grenade slammed into the right side of Tice's body. He was helicoptered to Japan and six weeks later to San Francisco. He lost 100 pounds. A month later, gangrene nearly claimed him. He asked to see the chaplain, convinced he was going to die. His right arm and shoulder were amputated. When Tice was 18, Lisa Boyce was only 12 but had already fallen in love with him. She would write to him often in Vietnam. She knew this was not just a schoolgirl crush on a tall, handsome guy with a great sense of humor. She told her family she would marry Steve and they would just laugh at her. On the day after Steve Tice arrived at Letterman Hospital in San Francisco, Lisa Boyce was there for him and would never lose her ability to see beyond his bandages. He would spend nearly a year in the hospital and then began dating Lisa. Steve Tice's story is a reminder of how the many survivors of the Vietnam conflict suffer in ways those of us who didn't share that experience will never fully appreciate. Anchor: Ted Koppel.
