Originally published as the cover for the July 6, 1916, issue
of Leslie's Weekly with the title "What Are You Doing for Preparedness?"
this portrait of "Uncle Sam" went on to become--according to
its creator, James Montgomery Flagg--"the most famous poster in the
world." Over four million copies were printed between 1917 and 1918,
as the United States entered World War I and began sending troops and matériel
into war zones.
Medal of Honor Recipients
Gulf War veterans to obtain copies of their in-patient hospital
records from hospitals established during the Persian Gulf War. Although
these records were located in the National Personnel Records Center (NPRC)
in St. Louis, MO, they were stored only by the name of the hospital and
date of treatment. Working with the Offices of the Surgeons General, the
Department of Veteran Affairs, and the National Personnel Record Center,
we are completing an electronic data base to cross-reference patient names
and SSN with the theater hospitals and admission dates. When this data
base of over 17,500 Gulf War inpatient records is completed, we will be
able to assist veterans in requesting copies of their hospitalization records.
Veterans may call 1-800-497-6261 to find out if their inpatient record
has been added to the data base and to obtain the paperwork necessary to
request a copy.
