“I served as a nurse during World War II and the Korean War on a navy medical ship. In Korea, I was on the USS Haven and cared for injured soldiers and Korean civilians who did not have access to medical care. I was sad to see so many young men hurt like that. The doctors and nurses were substantial, hardworking people. I was proud to be associated with them.”
