Excerpt from The Transactions of the Second Annual Meeting of the Association of Military Surgeons of the National Guard of the United States: Held at Memorial Hall, St. Louis, Mo., On the 19th, 20th and 21st of April, 1892 Therefore, gentlemen, I say that he who prepares himself in time of peace to serve his country in her hour of peril, is worthy of all emulation. His intelligent service in the hour of peril is worth that of twenty of his fellows, equally courageous and patriotic, but unskilled and inefficient. But, I believe this is a branch of the medical profession as well as of the military arm of the government. We recognize in this Association of Military Surgeons of the National Guard of the United States, men who are eminent in their profession, men upon whom demands are often made which in order to be met they must ignore their own interests. Men are here assembled, representing Military Surgeons of the United States, whose professional reputation is not confined to this country. We welcome you therefore, gentlemen, not only as members of the National Guard of the United States, but as eminent physicians.
