Malcolm Grow legacy still strong in Air Force medicine

Malcolm Grow in 1917 as a young Captain in the Russian Army during World War I. Before the U.S. joined the war, Grow traveled to Russia to provide medical care to a Russian Army facing a critical shortage of qualified doctors. Grow returned to the U.S. once it joined the war, and served a long, distinguished career, before retiring a Major General in the U.S. Air Force, and becoming the first Air Force Surgeon General.
