Our walk started in the Ft. Sam Houston Army Medical Department Museum.

From the museum, we walked outside around the base. The base is so big that we didn't duplicate much our walk from two years ago. We walked past the Exchange and the Army Uniforms warehouse, past Fort Sam Houston Theater, and through many areas of officers quarters and homes.
Below is the shoulder sleeve insignia for U.S. Army Medics. The maroon and white are the colors used for the U.S. Army Medical Department. The wings and serpent allude to the Caduceus symbol representing all medical services, and the sword in place of the staff
relates to the United States Army. The sword with point to base is symbolic of sacrifice and mercy, and alludes to the noncombatant role of the medical services.
|Housing on base.|
The Stilwell House was open to walk through. We enjoyed the period furniture.
