Monthly Reports of the Medical Activities

Division Surgeon

August - December 1944

The Office of the Division Surgeon, 9th Infantry Division, compiled and submitted a monthly "Report of Medical Activities" that highlighted the main activities of the division's Medical Department. It provided a statistical summary by unit of the casualties treated throughout the division during each month, but it did not contain the killed in action. The reporting categories included wounded-in-action (WIA), battle injuries (BI), non-battle injuries (NBI), disease, mental and physical exhaustion or simply exhaustions. The reports attached show the toll that the fighting along the Siegfried Line and in the Hürtgen Forest took on the division from September through December 1944, especially in the division's three infantry regiments, the 39th, 47th, and 60th, but also in the 15th Engineer Combat Battalion and the 9th Medical Battalion that closely supported the GIs.
