The diligence, insights, and compassion of the Medical Corps officers built the Medical Department's trusted reputation. They advised their commanders on how to keep soldiers healthy, and then did their utmost for each and every soldier who puts his/her life on the line in defense of the Nation. They built an organization that could learn and improve. Uniformed members of the Army Medical Corps were principal proponents in bringing science to bear on medical problems with which the US Army and the US military struggled. Their solutions often influenced civilian and academic colleagues, and changed the face of national defense, global health, and international commerce. This series of narratives was undertaken as the first in a series of corps histories from which all AMEDD members and the public at large can draw encouragement and a broader perspective. Included are fourteen biographical profiles of John Warren, William Beaumont, Jonathan Letterman, John Shaw Billings, George Miller Sternberg, Walter Reed, William Crawford Gorgas, William T. Fitzsimons, Stanhope Bayne-Jones, James Stevens Simmons, Albert Julius Glass, Leonard D. Heaton, Spurgeon Hart Neel, Jr., and Edward Louis Buescher.
