Re: [REF] 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

I've been using the Memorial Day weekend here to get caught up on some backlogged work related to my father's unit (6th Armored Division) but have also touched upon my mother's 202nd General Hospital. Specifically, I searched the wonderful ABMC database (http://www.abmc.gov/search/wwii_unit.php) for...

Re: [REF] 202nd Gen Hosp, Paris, 1945

Nice find! Sure looks like you have the correct building. Let us know what you find out about the hospital history. Thanks, Sarge. I'll post info here as soon as I have something to report. If you look at the Raymond Poincare "page" on their internet hospital archive site, there's nary a ...

202nd Gen Hosp, Paris, 1945

A small but significant (to me, at least) development regarding the 202nd General Hospital in Paris, January - May, 1945. Using Lynne Bell's map and Google Earth, and a reference in Lois's materials to a "school", I was reasonably sure that the 202nd General Hospital had been located on th...

Re: 35th Station Hospital

Hi auntjulia, Welcome to med-dept.com.

And based on an APO address found at http://www.postalhistory.com, the 237th was located in Vit...

Re: [REF] Preparation for Overseas Movement Markings

This thread caught my eye, as my father's mussette bag had these markings. Family lore (which I know well not to trust) held that unit information had been painted over at some point for security reasons, though even as a kid I wondered why they would have used three stripes of paint to cover over s...

[REF] 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

When doing research, sometimes you hit a gold mine. I felt that way a few weeks ago when I discovered med-dept.com, and I had another euphoric moment at lunch today when I hit Google for the umpteenth time, and suddenly stumbled across a map of US Army medical facilities in Paris, 1945. The original...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Here's a summary of my raw material to date. At this point, I am trying to piece together both my mother's service, and the history of the 202nd General Hospital with which she served. The events below are organized chronologically, and the REFERENCE column points to sources listed at the bottom of ...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Last night I received a packet of records that Lois generously photocopied and forwarded to me. These were records that she acquired during her research of the 203rd General Hospital, and cover the 814th Hospital Center, which was the common administrative echelon for both the 202nd and 203rd (as we...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Yes, definitely. I agree. When I replied to Alain, I understood that he had identified the building in the photos. I guess my response was ambiguous. I already changed the captions in the album to reflect the new info. (Click the photo to expand it and display the detailed description text.)

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

That's a great clip, Lois. Thank you for the link. Here's an update of new info from the past couple of days: 1. Lois located and e-mailed an interesting and relevant 202nd reference from the 814th Hospital Center reports she copied during her 203rd G.H. research in the archives: ++++++++++++++ OK, ...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Thanks Alain. That is valuable information about the American Hospital in Paris. Lois has also been very generously sharing information via e-mail, so I am getting more and more pieces to the puzzle. I was wondering if the equipment and clothing info would be of interest to the re-enactors here, or ...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Okay, here is a modest start. I've created on-line albums on myphotoalbum.com for pix, and will post scans of documents here. I have lots of material from 1942-1944, Station Hospital, Camp Cooke, CA, but I assume that this topic is not of particular interest, so I've put those in a separate album: h...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Thanks Lois. I'll post the dates I have when I get a chance, plus a few other tidbits. I do think that a trip to NARA is in my future. This will be a different type of project than I performed for my father's combat unit: that was mostly a case of acquiring several unit histories that were published...

Re: Sisters at 202nd Gen Hosp and Camp Cooke

Thanks, Lisa. It's been a few years since I Googled around for "Army Nurse Corps" and this site did not exist the last time I tried. I knew I had hit gold after browsing just a few pages. WW II combat units are relatively easy to research, because so many of them compiled unit histories or...
