White coats in the White House
Retired Army Gen. John E. Hutton, MD, (red tie) formed a strong bond with President Ronald Reagan during the doctor's years at the White House. Dr. Hutton, a surgeon, was Reagan's third chief physician. The first two were civilians. Dr. Hutton also hired other physicians to help staff the White House Medical Unit."I would always try to get somebody who would do it as a favor to the country."
