Abstract

In September, 19-14, the writer and one enlisted man were ordered to Burma from the Ninth Medical Service Detachment (Laboratory) to complete an intestinal parasite survey of the 1888th Engineering Aviation Battalion then engaged in constructing the air field two miles north of Myitkyina near the Irrawaddy River. Another team from the Ninth Medical Service Detachment (Laboratory) had surveyed a part of the unit in India several weeks earlier, and reported an incidence of Endamoeba histolytica of approximately 15 percent. The enlisted personnel of the organization, which was entirely colored, was drawn largely from southern states, though there was a liberal sprinkling of northern Negroes.
