MSC Association History Project

Your Association is sponsoring a three-volume history of the Medical Service Corps. Volume 1 is complete and you can read about it and purchase a copy below. Volume 2 is expected to be a typical, chronological accounting of the Corps. Volume 3 is anticipated to be a collection of stories from MSCs and about the Corps.

Volumes 2 and 3 are currently under development and we need your stories. We have a questionnaire that you can download and complete it and either email or mail to us. Instructions are on the MS Word document. We need your stories! So please, download the MS Word version here. Apologies to those who submitted the on-line version. We discovered after the fact that there was a very restrictive limit to the total number of characters that could be submitted on-line, so much of the input received was severely truncated. You can resubmit the information by EMAIL or via the downloadable form.
