Who organized the first Army Ambulance Corps?
Dr. Jonathan Letterman, in 1862.
The U.S. Ambulance Corps was a unit of the Union Army during the American Civil War. The Ambulance Corps was initially formed as a unit only within the Army of the Potomac, due to the effort of several Army officials, notably Dr. Jonathan Letterman, medical director of the Army of the Potomac, and William Hammond, the US Surgeon-General. Until August 1862, the lack of trained ambulance drivers meant that the wounded had to wait a long time to receive medical care. This changed at the Battle of Antietam in September 1862 when his new system allowed the wounded men to be transferred quickly so there could be fewer deaths. The corps also meant that ambulances had a more centralized organization.  Due to public pressure, the Army created an Ambulance Corps for all units and theaters of operation, through the Ambulance Corps Act of March 11, 1864. The Confederate armies did not have any such service available within their military. The Confederate Army did have an Ambulance Service.

Did the US Army V Corps Artillery land on Omaha Beach in the first or second wave and how important were they to the battle?
Answer . \nAs far as I can tell, no artillery landed in any of the first or second waves on Omaha Beach. Gunfire support came from the air force and the Navy, and the latter was vital to the invasion's success.
Well it depends on which army you are talking about. Actually it does not matter what army you are talking about. From the Romans to the U.S. military the oldest profession in an army is Infantry!
a great many. technical, medical, administrative, drivers, supply and many other positions, freeing men for field duty............
Helicopters are used by the army for troop movement on the battlefield. You can't land a C-130 in a jungle or on a rooftop, but a helicopter will go anywhere with a small clearing. Also, helicopters such as the Apache attack helicopter are highly effective against armoured units.

The British Army Air Corps was founded in 1911, using balloons and later aircraft, it was joined with the Royal Naval Air Service to form the RAF in 1918, but re appeared to fly gliders in WW2 and now operates Army Helicopters. The US Army Air Corps formed out of the US Air Service in 1926 (the Air… Service having been formed in spring 1918) and became the USAF in 1941 - although the paperwork took a while to sort out. The modern Air component of the Army is the Aviation Branch - starting in the 1950's with helicopter units and Air Cav and formally reappearing in 1983. The French formed their Air Corps in 1909 - becoming a separate "Armee de l'Air" in 1933, they formed a new Air Corps similar to the British Helicopter one in 1954. Most countries have one... which did you mean? ( Full Answer )

The Women's Army Corps was created July 1, 1943. It was establishedby public law and remained a part of the military until 1972 whenit was disbanded.
As the name suggests this was an auxiliary branch of the British Army (late 1930s - 1940s/ WW2 era) in which women served, usually as drivers, mechanics, secretaries and general administrators. These women wore a khaki uniform, and underwent a limited amount of military training, but were not traine…d for combat or direct combat support roles; their main purpose was to carry out routine admin and other tasks thus freeing men for service in the field army. The Queen, as Princess Elizabeth, served during WW2 as a driver and vehicle mechanic, and another woman driver/ mechanic, Kay Summersby, was General Eisenhower's designated driver (chosen by Ike - many believe they may have been lovers) throughout his time as Commander of Allied Forces in Europe. A few WAACs did, however, receive combat training in the Special Operations Executive, and served with great distinction as covert operators in occupied Europe. Post WW2 the WAACs were disbanded and replaced by the Women's Royal Army Corps (WRACs), a proper corps of the British Army, in which thousands of women served throughout the Cold War era. Although WRACs were "non-combatant", all received basic military training (including handling firearms, basic infantry tactics, NBC warfare, fieldcraft etc), and some did see direct active service, notably those attached to the Intelligence Corps or selected for "special duties" as covert intelligence operators in Northern Ireland. Those who did serve in the 14th Intelligence Company in N Ireland ("The Det") had to undergo and pass exactly the same extremely demanding selection and training process as male candidates. There's no doubt that the excellent performance of many of these women did much to overcome doubts and prejudices about the suitability of women for more combat orientated roles. Since the 1990s the British Army has been totally integrated: the WRAC no longer exists, and women enlist and serve in all branches of the Army (except the Infantry and Armoured Corps) on exactly the same basis as men. Today you will find female soldiers and officers in the Royal Artillery, Royal Engineers, Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers, Intelligence, Logistics, Signals, and Medical Corps, as well as in the administrative branches (Adjutant Generals corps), and there are women serving as helicopter (incl attack helicopter) pilots, gun battery commanders, and combat engineer troop commanders. It's now only a matter of time before there are women serving as brigade and divisional commanders. ( Full Answer )
im assuming that you mean the livery on vehicles. I cant find a specific date but i know that the livery was done this way because vehicle drivers may not be able to read the word when an ambulance is behind them. Because of this, they may worry that it might be a police vehicle.
The highest ranked switchboard operator during World War II. A T-5 had to be addressed as Corporal but could not give orders unless in battle.
Each service has different yet overlapping tasks. This creates similar organizations, for example they both have an infantry and armor. Because they have separate tasks for their similar organizations there will be differences. An example of this is aviation. Both the Marines and the Army have aviat…ion, however the Marines operate fighter aircraft (Harrier, Hornet) whereas the Army deals primarily with helicopters. The Marines have a strict, more time consuming initial training then the Army and this creates tighter unit cohesion. The Army has better family programs and career opportunities. It all depends on where you want to go and what you want to do. Serving your country is an honorable task that no one can deny. However, if you decide to join any branch for glory you're doing it for the wrong reasons. Selfless Service is a value both branches hold true. a more comprehensive answer. In theory the Marine Corps and Army have two different missions. The Marines are to accompany Navy ships and be ready to deploy to anywhere in world at very short notice. They have the ability to deploy men, heavy vehicles (tanks, armored personnel carrier), aircrafts while other the Armed Forces are moving to the area. In short, the Marines are a contingency force that react quickly to conflict. The Army has a much broader mission. In short, their job is to fight and win any armed conflict. The Army is a much more diverse force. They have many heavy armored units that can move through and capture any conventional target. In addition they have light and medium (Stryker) units that are more nimble. In addition the Army has their own quick reacting force in the paratroopers (which are much more widely used than the Marines). Army Paratroopers can arrive anywhere in the world in 18 hours (vs 72 of the Marines) and in any terrain (vs just shorelines in the USMC). However, unlike the USMC which can deliver tanks and aircrafts, the Paratroopers drop into combat without any sort of heavy equipment. To add to that, the Army only has the bulk of the Special Ops community. Among them are Rangers and Special Forces (Green Berets). Rangers are a more elite airborne light infantry than the already elite paratroopers. Special Forces are tasked with unconventional warfare which ranges from training indigenous peoples to finding and capturing high value targets. SF is usually placed in country weeks or even months before any conventional force from the Army, Marines or any other branch will arrive. In addition the Army National Guard (a reserve force) is tasked US emergencies including immediate reaction to invasion on US soil. However do to the fact that there has been very few times Marines are needed in intended role (none in the last 20 years) minus humanity missions, the Marines has been used to as a light force to supplement the Army efforts. Marines are viewed to be very useful in invasion as very quick moving force (Marines earned a very good reputation after the first Gulf War). However do to their lack of a large Special Ops community (one has recently been created) they were all but sidelined in the Afghanistan invasion. Also during the Iraq War (2003) Marine invading forces were found too be light, venerable to enemy attacks, and arrived to objectives much later than Army counterparts, slowing the pace of the invasion. During many Marine-led missions (ie Battle of Fallujah), the Marines had request heavier Army units to act as their assaulting forces. This has caused tension in the military, because many felt the Army has to their job and then spend more assets assisting the Marines with theirs. The Army however has had the flexible to meet all of its objectives with their own units. Using light forces in places like Afghanistan and heavier units in places like Iraq. However this has always been the Army's job; to win in combat, regardless of when or where with the ability to assist (in case of SF), invade, and conduct anti-insurgence operations (the bulk of modern warfare) Whereas the Marines have to be pushed to supplement to the Army in a time of a over stretched military. However there are those that believe that have better discipline and cohesion among the entire Corps. Non-combat Marines are viewed to be more combat ready than their Army-counterparts (though the Army has been great change to this in recent years). The average Marine is thought to a better marksman than the average Soldier. Marine pride is seen throughout the Corps whereas many in the Army take identity in their unit (ie 82nd Airborne Division, 101st Airborne, 3rd Infantry, organization are by themselves a 1/3 of the size of the entire Marine Corps). Army in contrast offers much much more higher level training opportunities than in the USMC. Almost all Army Officers have attended Ranger school (whereas only specialized Marines such as Recon Marines attend) and all Army Infantry Officers are Airborne-qualified. Other schools include Sapper, Air Assault, and Mountain Warfare. (Marine Basic Sniper Course is 4 weeks longer than the Army's course, and all snipers from the Army's 25th Division are sent to the Marine's course) In additions the Army has a big contribution to the Special Ops community in the Rangers, SF, Nightstalkers (pilots), PSYOPS, and Civil Affairs whereas the USMC has just recently created a very small MARSOC unit modeled after Army SF. When it comes to combat, the Army is tasked with the primary objectives (ie Khandar province in Afghanistan) where Marines are tasked with a secondary (ie Helmand assisted by Army Stryker units). It is worth noting that the Army has much newer equipment (weapons, nvgs, vehicles) than the Marines. There are many that say a 11B (Army Infantryman) is very different than a 0311(Marine Infantryman). However I personally do not believe this because there have been many times (in Afghanistan) units have to been mixed. I do not wish to imply the Army is better than the Marine Corps. The Army just has much more abilities than the USMC on the account that they are tasked to do more and are much (2x on active duty size, and 4x including reserves) larger, (ie heavy units, SF units, paratroopers, National Guardmen). However in the areas that they overlap (light infantry forces) the differences depend more on the individual unit than the branch. The USMC has just not had the chance to perform its in intended purpose (waterborne quick reaction force) in quite some time whereas the Army has been overused to the point where they have used large amounts of reserve troops and the USMC has been called on to supplement them. There are those including Sec of Def. Gates that feel the usefulness of waterborne invasion in waning in todays world and the USMC needs to specialize in tasks that the Army cannot perform (ie combat operations at sea against pirates). For those that like numbers. Marine Basic is 12 weeks (plus 1 week of reception). Army non-Armor-Infantry-Engineer- or Military Police recruits attend Basic that is 9 weeks (plus 1 week of reception). All other Army recruits (combat oriented troops) attend a 14 weeks OSUT program which includes basic training plus mos-skills taught in a basic-like setting. For those who like to split hairs. The Marines have a nicer dress uniform but the newly retouched Army Service Uniform looks pretty snazzy as well. Hooah and Oorah. ( Full Answer )

It generally indicates a military force of two or more operating divisions "plus" such supporting arms and equipment as the mission may require.
\nNo. The members of the Women's Army Corps were assimilated into the Regular Army in 1978.
An admiral would serve in the Navy or Coast Guard. Senior officers in the Army are generals. The answer is no admiral was involved in organizing or commanding the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) (note the correct word order). . The WAAC was organized at the behest of Army chief of staff, Genera…l George C. Marshall to meet anticipated manpower shortages cause by total mobilization in World War II. Laws of the United States pertaining to military service were interpreted as applying to men only with the exception of the Army and Navy nurse corps. As a result special laws were required before women could be enlisted or commissioned in the Army or Navy. . The bill to establish a women's corps in the Army was introduced by Congresswoman Edith Norse Rodgers. It caused intense debate in the Congress. Congressmen worried, for example, about who would take care of the "homey" chores -- caring for children, doing the cooking and laundry. It was only the strong support from the Secretary of War and Gen. Marshall, driven by wartime necessity, that swayed a reluctant Congress. . The WAAC was authorized by Congress with the passage of Public Law 77-554 on May 14, 1942. The law was signed by President Franklin Roosevelt on May 15th. The first women began training at Fort Des Moines, IA on July 20, 1942. . The WAAC was organized under the leadership of Colonel Oveta Culp Hobby. She was not a "commander," a military term that has legal and operational meaning. She was a staff officer in the War Department headquarters. Staff officers are not "commanders." . The WAAC status as an auxiliary was changed with the signing of Public Law 78-110 on July 1, 1943. The Women's Army Auxiliary Corps became the Women's Army Corps. Dropping auxiliary status, women in the WAC were now officially and legally "in" the Army. ( Full Answer )

Absolutely not. The US Marine Corps is a separate service, that is a branch of the Department of the Navy.
I'm guessing you mean the Army of Northern Virginia. The Confederacy was divided into geographic departments, with a general commanding both the department and any troops in the department. For the last three years of the war Robert E. Lee commanded the Department of Northern Virginia, and the sizab…le force within the Department, which he began styling the Army of Northern Virginia. His predecessor had called this force the Army of the Potomac, a name soon appropriated by the Yankees for the army opposing Lee. Lee's Department embraced Virginia north of the James River. When Lee first took command of this Department, Confederate law did not provide for army corps or for lieutenant generals to command corps. The Confederate law allowed for brigadier and major generals, and for full, four star generals. Lee worked diligently to maintain close relations with the Confederate government and with Jefferson Davis, and was soon able to have these defects remedied. Until that time though, Lee had to use a cumbersome arrangement of "wings" as groupings of divisions. When the law allowed Lee divided his army into two corps. The First Corps was the largest, and was under newly promoted Lieutenant General James Longstreet. The Second Corps was under Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson. There were eight divisions in the army, but not all were of equal size. Some had more brigades than others. The Brigades were not all of equal size either. Lee did do his best to carry through a reorganization near and dear to the heart of Jefferson Davis, which was to brigade troops from the same state together. Lee's predecessor had refused to do this, excusing himself from this on the ground that doing so "in the presence of the enemy" would be dangerous. This had created much rancor and ill will between that officer and Davis. From the late summer of 1862 the Army of Northern Virginia continued with this organization, until Jackson was mortally wounded at Chancellorsville. After Jackson's death Lee reorganized his army into three corps, each with three divisions. Longstreet continued in command of the First Corps, Richard S. Ewell (back from losing a leg at Second Manassas) took over the Second Corps, and A. P. Hill was promoted from divisional command to head the new Third Corps. This organization continued until the last few weeks of the war, when a Fourth Corps was created, commanded by Richard H. Anderson. Ewell proved unable to stand field command after Gettysburg, and was replaced by Jubal A. Early. Longstreet was badly wounded in the Wilderness, and out of action for months. Hill was killed a week before Appomattox. ( Full Answer )

The number and strength of the various corps changed over time. The Union had 25 numbered corps, plus an ambulance corps, balloon, cavalry, and telegraph corps. Not all of these were in operations at the same time. Not all of the Confederate Army was divided into corps. The Army of Northern Vi…rginia had four regular corps and one cavalry corps. The Army of Tennessee had 3 corps. The Confederates had about 13 small armies which might be considered as corps. Most of these armies did not operate throughout the war; instead they were broken off of other units and later merged again. ( Full Answer )

Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. ( Full Answer )
