This engaging video from the National Archives and Records Administration shows the challenges faced by the Army Medical Service during World War I as well as the landings at the Normandy Beachhead during World War II. In addition, action in the Pacific depicts the medics that landed with the first waves, bringing equipment and supplies, which made the difference between life and death to the island-hopping soldiers.
