HEALTH AND MEDICAL PREPAREDNESS
THOMAS PARRAN, M.D.Surgeon General, U. S. Public Health Service WASHINGTON, D. CThe problem which concerns each of us today is what we can do to contribute to the safety of our country. Traditionally, as doctors and nurses, we have been servants of peace. When war did come, it was our job to patch up the wounds, ease the suffering of the wounded, and repair as best we could the damage done by shot and shell.
