To the career medical Scouters,
A number of years ago someone told me that "super glue" was originally
developed, during the Viet Nam war, as a way to close up battle wounds. Does
anyone know if that is true or just another urban legend. The reason I ask is I
was wondering if it would be a good idea to put some in a first aid kit if you
would be going on a long term backpacking trip where medical help could be a day
or two away.
