DeBakey is made Consultant in the Surgeon General’s Office, participating in personnel assignments, modernization of equipment, and much writing. Military red tape vexes his efforts to prevent a repeat of the medical lessons learned during World War I, and the soldiers suffer as trench foot reappears. Auxiliary Surgical Groups are formed for front-line surgery. DeBakey tours the armies in Europe, compiling data for scientific analysis. After the war, DeBakey remains in uniform for a year, is appointed to a full Colonel and other positions of importance, and returns to New Orleans a figure well-known to leaders in American medicine and politics.
