The Army took its responsibility for soldiers' healthcare seriously. They started by trying to select only healthy men, but also invested heavily in preventative and curative medicine. Dr. Sanders Marble will discuss the medical care provided for soldiers in World War I by the Army, as well as rehabilitative care after the war in the absence of the Veterans Administration.

This World War I centennial event is free and open to the public. A full program for the Friench Simpson Library's Lone Star State and WWI lecture series can be viewed here.
