A traveling nurse stops in to visit a patient in this sweet slice-of-life image from 1949.
"Symbol of Life - The Caduceus, worn by the Army Nurse, symbolizes life for our wounded, hope for our homes; a future, not just a past for these fighting men. Ten thousand registered nurses are needed at once for a glorious service of mercy -- gratefully received by all who need it. - US Army Nurse Corps" ~ WWII era nursing recruitment poster, ca. 1940s.
