SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE: The original release sheet reads: Here is a dramatic film presentation depicting the airborne doctor and medical corpsman in battle, a team that brings new honors to a service that has traditionally been the best in the world. As the combat infantryman took to the air, so did the elements of supply he needed on the ground -- the quartermasters, the artillery, the medics. This role has been captured on film; the role of airborne medics in modern tactical operations.
