Description

Edited by Sanders Marble. Contains biographies of fourteen pioneers in the history of the United States Army Medical Department.

This resource offers a look at the U.S. Army Medical Corps serving military soldiers and families to bring forth public health policies concerning caregiving, illnesses, and injuries.

Today’s Army Medical Corps plays a key role in a team of Army Medical Department (AMEDD) teams: eight corps with a long and distinguished history.  The Medical Corps has always shouldered a wide range of responsibilities.  Their officers provide compassionate, world-class care, ranging from the battlefield to the care of family members and retirees at home; they perform basic and applied research; uniformed physician educators teach and mentor the next generation of caregivers; they plan and implement preventive medicine programs; and, as has always been a critical duty since the inception of the AMEDD, Medical Corps officers provide staff advice throughout the Army on public health policies, medical material development and fielding, and medical care from the point of injury or illness through evacuation, to recovery and rehabilitation at home station.

This series of narratives was undertaken as the first in a series of corps histories from which all AMEDD members and the public at large can draw encouragement and a broader perspective.
