Summary
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.
"The opening feature of this pictorial report tells the story of the Army's Surgical Research unit, a component of the great Brooke Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Here, Army medics and research scientists have been developing unique and dramatically successful methods of burn treatment. Viewers will follow several typical burn cases from the initial injury through the various stages of diagnosis and therapy. In any future conflict, experience gained in the Army's Surgical Research unit will bring comfort to a soldier when he needs it most. The cameras focus next on the Signal Corps' latest tool -- the portable TV camera. This cousin of the older walkie-talkie brings Army commanders a frontline view of terrain and troop deployments through a unique and completely portable TV camera, light enough to be strapped to one man's back. The program concludes with a visit to Germany's Bavarian Alps, where U.S. soldiers take a well earned alpine holiday."--National Archives and Records Administration.
