Our Medical Men

By C. M. DeForest, M. D.
From every town and city in Madison county members of the medical profession went forth in answer to the call of their country. Many with families, and almost without exception beyond draft age, sacrificed their practice to join the service.

Their record has been a glorious one. Days and nights of gruelling toil in 
dressing stations and hospitals that were nothing but a shambles, weary rounds in wards, devoted care of the sick and wounded--this is the record of our physicians.

A few of them were fortunate enough to be sent with our soldiers to France and they have established for themselves and for their country an enviable record. Following are the names of those in Madison county who were in military service:

Lieut. C. S. Goodwin, Bridgeport 
Capt. S. T. Barton, Canastota
Lt.-Col. C. M. DeForest, Canastota
Capt. H. G. Germer, Canastota
Capt. E. C. Holden, Canastota
Lieut. F. D. Keppel, Cazenovia
Lieut. W. W. Woglum, DeRuyter
Capt. L. C. Beebe, Hamilton
Capt. G. W. Wilcox, Hamilton
