For nearly 25 years, the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) has actively sought out the memories of Navy and civilian medical/nursing personnel. Inspired by this project, the Navy Nurse Corps has conducted over 500 oral history interviews with Nurse Corps officers. A few of these oral histories pre-date World War II, but the majority of these stories are of the women who served in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. These captured voices not only add to the fabric of the Navy Nurse Corps'...
