Abstract

"Gentlemen, As you may know I was the physician for the enlisted personnel in Camp 5 on the Yalu Reservoir in early 1951 and in Death Valley before that. Because of this, many of the enlisted men and non-commissioned officers have written to me or called with health problems that had manifested themselves during our incarceration in Korean prisons. They seem to have run into a stone wall with the VA (Veterans Administration). They feel they are getting a deaf ear and asked for help. I want to help them and I think you all do too.
