Army Medical Department Museum
Me: "Come on, let me get a picture of you in front of the Combat Medic statue."
Teenagers: "No way! Why [blah, blah, blah, resistance, other forms of dis'ing the old man]"
Me: "Fine, maybe later. Come on, I want to show you what I do"
Little K: "What do you do, anyway?"
Me: "Come on, I'll show you."
Me: "Now how 'bout that picture?"
The Army Medical Department Museum is on Fort Sam Houston, Texas, and is open to the public. It is well done, mixing national history with the history of the Army Medical Department. If you come to the museum, you can learn the history of the Department and it's component branches (Medical Service Corps of course is the most interesting - no bias there).
