June 20, 1980 The White Falcon Page 3 Hospital Corps' 82nd birthday The Naval Station Hospital cele- ted The Hospital Corps' 82nd fchday on June 18, although the ual birthday was June 17. The celebration was held at the Glacier Hut with a cake cutting ceremony. The Hospital Corps came into ex- istence as an organized unit of the Medical Department under the provi- sions of an act of Congress, approv- ed June 17, 1898. During World War I, the reputa- tion of the Hospital Corps for per- formance of duty, especially in the field with the Marine Corps, was greatly enhanced. Many of the mem- bers were cited for valor and per- formance of duty under fire, by both the United States and France. From the period of World War I to World War II, the Hospital Corps be- came one of the outstanding corps of the military services. More schools were provided, qualifications for advancement in ratings were raised, and a high degree of technical skill and knowledge was demonstrated by all members of the corps. The mission of the Hospital Corps is to give on land, sea, and in the air, intelligent, capable, and effi- cient assistance to Medical, Dental, Medical Service, Nurse, and Hospital Corps officers in the eternal war a- gainst disease, injury, and death, and to aid in maintaining the supply and administrative functions of the supportive branches of the Medical Department. This complex mission requires from each member of the Hospital Corps a versatility neither demanded nor expected of other enlisted rat- ings in the Navy. CAPTAIN C. VOYLES, Commanding Officer Naval Station Hospital points out to HMCS H. Eskildsen and HA A. Inge the best way to cut the cake, which commenced the 82nd Hospital Corps' birthday party recently held at the Glacier Hut. • National electi compared to a The upcoming national election can be compared with a large na- tional survey with one major differ- ence.
