In 1943, Dr. Cannon joined the Medical Corps of the United States Army. He served in the plastic surgery unit at the Valley Forge General Hospital in Pennsylvania, as assistant chief and then chief. This unit performed over 15,000 operations without a single fatality.
These moulages show the progress of an infantryman's recovery from a severe soft-tissue and bony injury to the face caused by a shell fragment in Normandy, July 1944.
