It is with great pleasure that we present to you the summer 2012 edition of THE GROG. In our attempt to meet our standards of variety, we offer you original articles on: Navy Medicine in the War of 1812, A Look Medicine and Hygiene in the Royal Navy, A Brief History of the Navy Mobile Care Team Program, Notes on the first African-American in the Dental Corps, and much more. As always, we hope you enjoy this humble tour of the seas of Navy medical culture and heritage.
The Grog is a free quarterly publication of the BUMED Communications Directorate dedicated to the promotion and preservation of Navy medical history and culture. It was founded in 2006 as a bimonthly newsletter of Navy medical history called The Grog Ration.
