Excerpt from Annual Reports of the War Department for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 1903, Vol. 1: Reports of the Secretary of War, Chief of Staff, Adjutant-General, Inspector-General, and Judge-Advocate-General I have the honor to submit the following report of operations of this Department for the past year. On the lst of December, 1902, the date of the last annual report, the Army of the United States, according to the latest reports which had been received from the military departments, consisted of officers and enlisted men, a total of In addition, there were in the service men of the Hospital Corps excluded by the act of March 1, 1887, from classification as part of the enlisted force of the Army. There were also in the service 182 volunteer medical officers, 100 officers and enlisted men of the Philippine Scouts, and 29 officers and 840 enlisted men of the Porto Rico Regiment. At that time I reported an order made on the 24th of October, 1902, providing for a further reduction of the Army to the minimum strength allowed by law, except as to the organizations which were to be kept at full strength for instruction purposes at Leavenworth and Riley, and the Legation Guard at Peking. That order has been executed during the year by permitting enlistments to run out without filling the vacancies.
