Fighting For A Cure: The Berry Plan's Impact on Civilian Medical Research
by Delisio, John Paul, Jr., M.A., The George Washington University, 2017, 52; 10621491
Abstract (Summary)

This paper details the story of Yellow Berets and their research at the National Institute of Health. Yellow Berets were part of the antiwar movement during the Vietnam War. Forced to serve in the military through the Berry Plan, Yellow Berets chose to research civilian medical problems instead of fighting in Vietnam. The combination of Yellow Berets and an increased budget allowed the NIH to become a premier research institute for civilian medical advances.
