    92nd Medical Corps

    Nicole Poletika Newbie

      Hello! You guys were so helpful in the past, so I figured I come to you with this question. I'm writing historical marker text for someone who, according to their headstone application, served in the "92nd Division (Medical Corps)." I saw that a VA historian wrote that he served in the "92nd Medical Corps." Is this the official way to denote it?

       

      Thanks much!

          Dear Ms. Poletika,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the World War II Operations Reports, 1940 - 1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1905 - 1981 (Record Group 407), the Unit Annual Reports, 1940 - 1949

          in the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army), 1775 - 1994 (Record Group 112) , and the Unit Histories, 1943 - 1967 in the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter), 1917 - 1999 (Record Group 338) but were unable to locate information pertaining to a unit called the 92nd Medical Corps.

           

          Instead in Record Group 407, we located operation reports of the Surgeon’s Section for October 1942 to 15 June 1945 and 15 August to 29 October 1945; annual reports of Medical Department activities for 1944; Office of Division medical supplies for November 1944 to March, June to July 1945; medical history of the Office of the Surgeon for December 1944 to July 1945; and operation reports of the Office of the Surgeon for 15 August to 29 October 1945 of the 92nd Infantry Division. We also located histories for 16 October 1942 to 15 July 1945; historical data for 4 April 1944 to July 1945; and general orders for 1944 of 317th Medical Battalion, 92nd Infantry Division.

           

          For access to and/or copies of these medical units of the 92nd Infantry Division, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at archives2reference@nara.gov.

            Rebecca,

             

            Wow, thanks for doing so much great digging. I so appreciate it. I'm sorry if I didn't make it clear that Dr. Ward actually served in World War I. Any info on that would be wonderful.

             

            Thank you,

            Nicole
