In the prologue to this enlightening, moving historical document, entitled “The Gift of Life,” it is stated that “The particular casualty whose treatment and evacuation we are discussing will be one of these (more severely wounded). Had he been less severely wounded his injuries would have been dressed and rebandaged at the clearing station and he would have been moved to an evacuation hospital for surgery. As it is, he will be a transient at the evac (uation hospital) on his way to the communications zone. When he moves from the field hospital unit to the evacuation hospital he will pass from division to army control, at the same time entering the third echelon in the chain of evacuation. He will be brought to the evac(uation hospital) by an ambulance of a collecting company, but this time it will be a company of a medical battalion (separate)—not organic to any formation but in this case assigned to army and under control of the army surgeon.”
