It has been the custom of this Post to designate one of the medical officers as an orthopedic surgeon; who, in addition to his other duties, is responsible for formulating the necessary rules and regulations on foot care and shoe fitting.

Two of the overseas regiments, leaving this Post, had a medical officer who had received some instruction on this subject and acted in this capacity.

In any organization, unit, or detachment, it appears advisable to assign one medical officer to this duty, preferably one who is interested in this subject.
