KD on film:
As scarce as they are, the KD’s have turned up in several movies, although usually very briefly. These include:
Back to the Beach, Fighter Squadron (1948), Kelly's Heroes (1970), The Forgotten War (narrated by Robert Stack), Heartbreak Ridge (1986) with Clint Eastwood, and Command Decision (1948) with Clark Gable. I'll try to put the scenes online if I can find them, any help is welcom...

Here are some internet films aboud The Medical Department in WW2:

(You Tube) Wounded are carried to trucks-which take them to the beachhead-where they are loaded onto Higgins boats and then ferried out to waiting PBY that will take them to a rear area field hospital, late 1943, Northern Solomons.
(You Tube) Wounded are given plasma at a jungle aid station-under the trees of a coconut tree plantation, 1943. Nice detail of how the plasma bottles are prepared-and then used...Medic/Corpsman wets wounded mans lips with damp cloth-as water is like gold and in short supply.
(You Tube) Wounded Marines are ferried via ambulance jeeps through the jungle to a rear area Naval field hospital. Wounded are prepared for surgery, insturments are sterilized and then men are operated on. Nice detail of plasma bottles.
(You Tybe) Footage of a 511th PIR field hospital in Leyte, Philippine Islands, December 1944.
(You Tube) Re enactment of a World War II fieldhospital.
