In early 1945, on the island of Saipan, home of the XXI Bomber Command, the Army allowed the AAF to pool some wing dispensaries into a 100-bed hospital. The overcrowded hospital run by the AGF nearby was able to handle only critical AAF patients. The hospital’s surgeon and even the Army Surgeon General agreed to permit a pooled AAF facility at West Field. About the same time, the Army agreed to a similar arrangement for a 150-bed hospital in Hawaii. Despite these administrative problems, the war in the Pacific taught the AAF much about medical practice in the tropics.

Starting in 1943, more conventional methods had also been used by malaria control and survey units. With the aid of DDT and other preventive measures, these units reduced the malaria rate to the point that it was no longer a serious handicap to operations by the end of 1944. Another medical problem—maintaining aircrew fitness and morale— was less tractable. AAF crews had to fly until they were killed, wounded, or sidelined by some physical illness or mental problem caused by stress. S. Army command in the Pacific—unlike the Navy, the Marines, and the Army command in Europe—did not create a rotation policy for their aircrews.
