US army doctor returns arm to Vietnamese soldier fifty years after he took it as a souvenir.
there are so many intersecting levels of fucked up here
That has to be the most forgiving man in history.
Here is the full story and not the sensationalized version: Nguyen Quang Hung was shot in the arm, taken in by American forces (different from the one who shot him) and Sam Axelrad saved his life by amputating the infected arm. His colleagues took the bones from the amputated arm and made them into the thing you see in the picture to remind Axelrad of a good deed done.
Years later, Axelrad finds the bones in his closet and wanted to reunite them with the original owner. So he goes over to Vietnam and goes on a country-wide search for Hung, not even knowing if Hung was still alive. His story gets picked up by a major newspaper and long story short Axelrad was able to return the bones to Hung and the two shared war stories. (x)
Hung has nothing to forgive Axelrad for: he did nothing wrong and in fact saved Hung’s life. The bone thing is odd, definitely, but considering that most amputated limbs end up incinerated this entire story works out in Hung’s favor.
This isn’t sensational or show how awful the American soldiers were. It is kinda a sweet story.

This scene was perfect
That time James Bond replied to homoerotic taunting not with some macho no homo bullshit, but by calmly implying he was bisexual anyway and somehow did not suddenly cease to be awesome but instead roughly doubled in awesome points.
I love this scene so much.

finally someone put up the whole thing, tragically beautiful
I know someone will ask, so this is from the movie Watchmen. The entire movie has nothing to do with this scene, really, considering it’s about heroes. But it is a beautiful opener.
If you think Watchmen had nothing to do with this scene ‘because it’s about heroes’ then you totally missed the point of the movie.
