SURGEON GENERAL KIRK OFFERS APPRECIATION TO PHYSICIANS
To all doctors and dentists who served at armed forces induction stations and personnel centers:
As a result of the decrease in activities at armed forces induction stations and personnel centers throughout the United States there has now become less need for assistance from civilian doctors and dentists in the making of physical examinations and the processing of personnel entering and leaving the military service.To each and every one of you who have given so freely of your time and professional skill may I take this opportunity to express my sincere and most grateful appreciation.Without your help the job would have been much more difficult and medical officers on active duty would have had to be detailed to these facilities when their services were urgently needed for the care of the sick and wounded as well
