Freedom Fighters: Dr. Jim Brunette

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Dr. Jim Brunette was just getting his dental surgery practice off the ground when he was called to war in 1951. He was sent to Korea almost immediately.

Assigned to a front line hospital, Dr. Brunette says between battles his work was much as it would have been back home.  However, during battles, his work included trauma injuries in the head and neck region.

In spite of the horrors of war, Dr. Brunette says his time in Korea was one of the most incredible learning experiences of his life.
