Nurses in WWII
Over 70,000 army and navy nurses served during World War II, all of them volunteers and half of them serving overseas. They followed the men onto the beaches and into the foxholes, 16 died in battle and 77 were taken prisoners of war. Yet, there is no record of their service in the official United States Army WWII annals. When the war ended, they faded back into a society that did not either recognize or value their service. They should not be forgotten.
