This chapter describes Howard Andrew Knox’s work as a physician with the U.S. Army from 1908 to 1911. In 1908 Knox applied for a commission in the Medical Reserve Corps, where he got the rank of first lieutenant. Knox was later assigned to active duty as the post surgeon in command of the Hospital Corps Detachment at Fort Michie, New York. Finding a military career congenial, he went on to seek an appointment in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. To proceed from the Medical Reserve Corps to the Army Medical Corps, he had to undertake a year’s training at the Army Medical School in Washington, D.C. Knox reported to Fort Hancock, where he continued his duties as assistant to the surgeon for the next few months. In January 1911 Knox married Gladys Barnett Reed, daughter of James P. Barnett and Helen Foster Barnett. Knox also spent time at the infirmary of the Third Provisional Regiment in Fort Crockett. In May 1911, he opened his general practice in Sheffield, Massachusetts.
