    • Sue Rogosienski

      Anybody remember a smallpox vaccine, and the scab that followed, and the scar that's still there? That hurt!!! And I still have my scar to prove it! (I thought that was from the polio vaccine ... but I DO still have the scar right where the nurse is giving the shot in this pic)

      Anybody remember a smallpox vaccine? I do and the scab that followed.And the scar now. Anyone else had the plastic raised thing with holes that you could wear over it as it healed? The nurse that gave me one said it wouldn't hurt yeah, as she drilled it into my flesh.

    Nurses '70

    in the early 1950s programs were started to issue dog-tags to children. There was concern that in the event of a surprise atomic attack it would be difficult to identify the millions of children killed while at school. The program never became as universal as hoped. (I remember this only too well. Scary times)

    this is one of the most haunting pictures i have ever seen. schoolgirls in gas masks. WWII.
