Plot Overview

Korean war veteran Neil Herrick is willing to undergo an operation to remove old shrapnel without any sort of anesthesia. The impressionable teenager sharing the room with him is impressed and also wants to have his more serious surgery done without medication, but Casey isn't so sure the young man should do so and tries to talk some sense into both him and Herrick.
