The veterans, both Purple Heart recipients, are recovering well thanks to the incredible sacrifice

From one Purple Heart to another Purple Heart: A life-saving kidney.

Vietnam War veteran John Middaugh has saved the life of his brother-in-arms, Henry ‘Bill’ Warner almost fifty years after the conflict – by donating one of his organs.

Middaugh, 73, said his war buddy had saved his life on more than one occasion while they were deployed in Vietnam, so it was only fair that he repaid the favor.

‘He would do the same for me,’ said the veteran from Port Orchard, Washington.

‘He had my back many times. So this is payback time,’ he added as he and Warner awaited surgery last week at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, in New York.
