Excerpt from Lessons From the Enemy: How Germany Cares for Her War Disabled

Having had opportunities for medical service in this war in England, France, Germany, and Austria, I finally selected Germany as the most interesting field, one in which our army had had no military medical observers, and the one about which the least had been written on the medico-military and volunteer nursing side, the side from which, according to the much-vaunted efficiency of German methods, a great deal might be learned.

An American Physicians' Expeditions Committee of New York was organized to send independent hospital units to the Central Powers. I accepted the directorship of a unit which was financed by a German, Austro-Hungarian Society, of Chicago. Before sailing, at the suggestion of the Surgeon-General, to comply with President Wilson's, neutrality proclamation, I resigned my commission as lieutenant in the Medical Reserve Corps with the understanding that I would be recommissioned immediately on my return. We arrived in Germany on June 17, 1916; were assigned first to Coblenz on the Rhine and after one month to Fortress Graudenz in the East.
