Many people have expressed a desire to make John an Army Surgeon. I understand why John the army surgeon is such an appealing idea and adds wonderful depth to his back story.
Part 3 is a short guide to how John the Army Surgeon can be made compatible with reality. It's just an interesting meta on what John went through to become an army surgeon and what he would actually do on the frontlines. I also explore why he's Dr Watson and not Mr Watson, where John actually got his medical degree from, and how John can have an MD in the modern age of medicine.
