Abstract

A Letter from the Surgeon General of the Army To the Editor:— In The Journal of Aug. 7, 1948, there appeared an editorial on "Medical Service with the Armed Forces." Increased interest in this subject is evidenced by various editorials and other comments in newspapers throughout the country. The editorial touched on a host of considerations arising out of the recent war, the contemporary situation, and more particularly those precipitated by the passage of the Selective Service Act by the 80th Congress. Inevitably the editorial approached the analysis of these problems from the viewpoint of organized medicine. Perspective is always a question of the position of the viewing subject to the perceived object. For this reason I welcome the opportunity to place before civilian medicine the picture as seen by the Army.
