Honoring our Navy Veterans on Veterans Day!

In honor of Veterans Day, I’m reposing a great article on “Navy Medicine in 1914” written by Andre Sobocinski.  So for today we especially recognize Rear Admiral William Braisted who served as the Surgeon General of the Navy from 1914-1920, thus during World War I, and all those medical personnel who served with him.  We additionally recognize all Navy Veterans. http://navymedicine.navylive.dodlive.mil/archives/5995

I’m also posting a picture of the USS Relief, a floating hospital ship used duirng World War I, renamed the USS Repose in 1918.Relief

I'm an author and college professor who works on French terrorists in the 1930s and 1940s. I'm writing a new book right now with Gayle K. Brunelle called "Vengeance: Vichy and the Assassination of Marx Dormoy." I'm also focused on the French Holocaust. In March of 2013 I'll take students on a study abroad called Paris/Auschwitz.
