—  Drawn by Colonel Forwood, Chief Surgeon, The World, August 9, 1898.

“The General Hospital will be one of the most complete camp hospitals ever erected. There will be one central covered passageway, and at the sea end of this will be the quarters for the surgeons. Nearby will be the operating tent and the tent for the storage of hospital supplies. From the covered passageway will range sixteen rows of tents containing at first 500 cots…..The chief surgeon does not think that there will be more than 500 cases of sickness that will need constant and unremitting attention.” — New York Times, August 8, 1898.

VETERANS OF FOREIGN WARS

 

The VFW traces its deepest organizational roots to Camp Wikoff. Thirteen soldiers of the 17th Infantry, largely in response to the agony and suffering of troops at Camp Wikoff, formed the American Veterans of Foreign Service in 1899, which became the Veterans of Foreign Wars in 1914. In 1917, Theodore Roosevelt became the first president to join that organization.
