Bulletin IV (as offered) was the last of a four bulletin series "Abstracts, Translations and Reviews of Recent Literature on the Subject of the Reconstruction and Reeducation of the Disabled Soldier and Sailor:. and was replaced by a printed montly magazine "to be called CARRY ON The Disabled Soldier's and Sailor's Magazine". The Foreword notes that the new name "CARRY ON" was suggested by Mary Roberts Rinehart.

Bulletin IV, May 25, 1918 is the second part of a detailed report "The Story of the Crippled Soldier's Progress from Disablement to Replacement in Civil Life", and reports on work in Italy, Belgium, Canada and other Countries. The previous Bulletin (No III. April 15, 1918) is more commonly seen, and is a companion volume to the current offering, dealing with the same topic but in only 96 pages and covering the work in France and Great Britain.

The introductory remarks are particulary interesting as they work through the many challenges facing cruppled soldiers as they are treated and released into civilian life. Many of the issues could have come from today's headlines. While medical technology has advanced considerably in 100 years, many of the same psychological issues remain.
