The W.W. II U.S. Army pay raise that was granted to combat infantrymen during the summer of 1944 was not extended to the front-line medics for reasons involving the obligations agreed to under the Geneva Convention Rules of War. This omission generated a number of infantrymen to write kind words regarding the medics while at the same time condemning the poorly conceived Geneva restrictions:

"...I've seen the medics in action and I take my hat off to them. Most of them have more guts then us guys with the rifles...I've seen them dash into cross-fire that would cut a man to ribbons to help a guy who was in bad shape. I say give them all the credit they deserve."
