Doc McIlvoy is the third volume in Michel DeTrez's World War 2 paratrooper portrait series titled 'The Way We Were'. Major Dan McIlvoy was a medical officer in the 82nd Airborne Division's famed 505th PIR. As a proud member of this unit from its first day of existence he was only apart from it for two days while being MIA in Normandy. The saga of the 505th Medical Detachment is retold through Doc McIlvoy's own story. As a battalion surgeon and later as a regimental surgeon Doc McIlvoy instituted many new methods of caring for and evacuating the unit's many casualties. Many of these innovations were later adopted as standard operating procedure by the US Army Medical Corps. Throughout his history of service Doc McIlvoy supervised the treatment of hundreds of combat casualties and with his great initiative surgical skill and devotion to duty he was able to save the limbs and lives of a great number of his wounded comrades.
