Was there a veterinarian at Camp Davis during World War II?

Ben Steelman

Apparently not, according to local historians David Stallman and Wilbur D. Jones Jr.

Stallman, who wrote a 50th anniversary history of the World War II Army base, says there isn’t a veterinarian listed on the partial roster of Camp Davis personnel at the Missiles and More Museum in Topsail Beach. Jones noted that no dogs or horses were kept at Camp Davis, so the Army was unlikely to post a veterinarian there.

The questioner had a relative, a doctor of veterinary medicine, posted at Camp Davis. Perhaps he served in another capacity.
