Summary:Dr. Calvin C. Chapman, MD, Commander of the U.S. Air Force 3rd Tactical Division in South Vietnam, narrates the activities involved in a village sick call. Patients are shown being treated for leprosy, tuberculosis, pneumonia, infections and other diseases. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
