FACTS ABOUT THE AMBULANCE
The Adjutant General's Office
Dr. R. G. Hamiltoii,
County Health Officer,
Fairfeld County Health Dept.,
Winnsboro, S. C.
Receipt is acknowledged of your
letter of June 10, 1922, requesting a 1
statement as to the number of Ambul
ance Service men cited by the French
and American Armies; also the num
ber of such men in the U. S. Army 1
and the relative amount of danger in
the different services.
The U. S. Army Ambulance Service
was organized in June, 1917, under 1
the provisions of General Orders 75,
War Department, June 23, 1917, for
duty with the mobile French Army,
upon the request of Marchal Joffre, 1
made during his visit to the United
States in May, 1917. 1
This pervice was planned with mob- i
ility and speed as the predominant

Vote for ti
ideas inasmuch as, under the Frenc
system of evactuation of the wound
Ad as practiced on the western front
the ambulances were, as a rule, re
juired to operate to within a fev
hundred yards of the front lino
:renches or, if in open warfare, to tho
Lctual lines, and to evacuate over th(
roads that were under practically con
inuous shell fire.
Practically all of the original mem
>ers of the service, about 3000 in num
yer were volunteers, recruited frorr
:he student bodies of the colleges and
mniversities throughout the country
t being considered especially desir
ible to obtain young men of mon
:han average intelligence, initiative
mnd daring for this highly specialize
mnd dangerous service in which, mor(
;han any other, the individual was
equired to operate alone and inde
)endently of the material and moral
support of a number of comrades
Every applicant for the service was
ully informed of the dangers, hard
ork and discomforts he might ex
)ect to encounter while serving at the
ront with the French Army, but this
nformation apparently only served
:o stimulate their enthusiasm and de
ire to join.
Sections of this service begar
perating with the French Army at
he front during the 'first weeks of
eptember 1917, and at the time the
rmistice was signed units of the
ervice were supplying ambulance
ransportation for the wounded o:
ome 85 French divisions and were
epresented in all of 'the ten French
rmies. That' the manner in which
heir at all times arduous, and very
requently dangerous, duties were
)erformed was appreciated by both
he American and French military
uthorities is attested by the numer
r Them P
i ous section and individual citations
- bestowed upon them. In addition to
serving the foregoing mentioned
- French organizations, quite a few

Jto the American Army during its
operations in the fall and summer of
The nearest possible approximation
to the number of decorations award
- ed members of the service is as fol
French: Legion d'Honneur 5; Med
aille Militaire 7; Croix de Guerre
1420; Medaile d'Honneur (Med. Dept)
American: Distinguished Service
Cross 24; Distinguished Service -Med
Tw sections of the service were.
awarded the fourrage in the colors
I of the Croix de Guerre for two citat
ions in the French Orders of the
Army. One section, it is worthy to
I note, received the fourrage in the:
colors of the Medaille Militaire for
four citations in the French Orders
of the Army, it being tr.e only unit
I of the American Army, so far as a
vailable records indicate, to be award-,
ed this highly prized decoration.
Thirty sections of the service com
posed of draft troops, aggregating
some 1300 men, joined in France after
the armistice. These men had no
opportunity of displaying their mettle
under fire but a considerable number
of them were assigned to French div
isions in the Army of Occupation in
Germany where they maintained the
good reputation of the service by
careful and conscientious performance
of the duties assigned them.
Very truly yours,
ROBERT C. DAVIS,
Acting The Adjutant General.
