In April, 1917, our country called on the medical profession for volunteers for medical service. The response was both prompt and generous. Again and again the call came, and each time met similar prompt and generous response. Some 35,000 physicians have responded to these calls and are serving in the Army or in the Navy. In addition, about 25,000 physicians have given freely of their time and labor to work on Selective Service Boards, thus making possible that efficient, physically fit machine—the National Army.
