Title: Back To The Old Job
From: How Can a Woman Best Help?
Original caption: Most of our wounded will be able to resume their former occupations. Although he lost both legs, this soldier will continue in his profession as a draftsman. At present he is being physically reconstructed at Walter Reed Hospital, Washington, D. C, but as soon as his artificial limbs are fitted he will leave. Meanwhile, the most effective curative agent is his occupation with mechanical drafting.
