The Army Hospital Album 11

I'll be finishing out the year with  more images from The Army Hospital Collection.  We've got  more dates with this lot.  The scrabble players and the two nurses, "MAY 55"  I keep wondering if being in a military hospital is an open ended thing.  If a soldier's enlistment is over, but he's still considered too ill for service, what happens?  Continued enlistment until recovery? Release to a VA facility?  Just plain release, left to their own devices?  And of course, what would have happened in 1955, compared to today?

Click on army hospital collection in the labels section to bring up everything.  Lots more to come.
