During the summer of 1941, the U.S. Army invited the University of Cincinnati to organize the 25th General Hospital to serve as a major medical facility in the European war theater.

More than 600 physicians, surgeons, nurses, and enlisted men served the 25th
with distinction in England, France, and Belgium until the end of the war.

An earlier incarnation of the 25th had bravely served on the battlefields of World War I.
