World War II Medical Research Centre

Thanks to the Make: blog for directing me to the WW2 U.S. Medical Research Centre, a site with a massive amount of information about U.S. military medical facilties during World War II.  Two British collectors and re-enactors started the site as a private venture, and eventually created an extensive online archive of data relating to U.S. military medical units.
