We thank Drs. Benumof and Faust for sharing their stories in regard to our article.1 These stories demonstrate the important impact that war has had on the specialty of anesthesiology. It is important to record these observations before they are lost to history. The repeat of the short course strategy in Vietnam proves that the idea was well conceived and answered the Armed Forces' need.
