Abstract

GENERAL CLARK EULOGIZES MEDICAL SERVICES AT SALERNO 

HEADQUARTERS FIFTH ARMY  Office of the Commanding General A.P.O. No. 464, U. S. ArmyMajor General Norman T. Kirk Surgeon General, U. S. Army War Department Washington, D. C. Dear General Kirk:In the field 25 September 1943I desire to express the highest commendation for the wonderfully fine work performed by the medical units of this Army. Their devotion to duty under the hazardous and trying circumstances of the landing in Salerno Bay and their skill and efficient administration reflect the best traditions of the Service. Many wounded officers and men, who will eventually be restored to full health, would have died but for the effective work of the Medical Corps. I am especially well pleased with the performance of the Surgeon Fifth Army. He has done a magnificent job.From the first landing to the date of this letter, 3,335
