In June of 1942 Bob Shepard and 67 other  medical personnel were  transfered from Fort Sam Houston to A.P. Hill, Virginia to await the additional  two hundred troops who would accompany them to North Africa.   An administrative error  sent the men to Camp Stoneman, Califorinia instead, so rather than  transport the 200 men to Virginia, Uncle Sam  moved the 68 men  at A.P. Hill to Camp Stoneman.  Thus the 1st Field Hospital began its  WWII adventure  in the Southwest Pacific theater aboard the U.S.S. Mount Vernon.
