Weekly Artifacts | Uniforms of Nurses

Nurses played an extraordinarily important role in World War II. They saved so many lives and helped so many wounded. Often times they worked in the middle of war zones under incredible pressure to help as many soldiers as they could. The bravery these nurses had was outstanding. They had impossible circumstances to overcome. Warfare wasn’t the only setback. There were diseases, unclean water, and sub-par structures to perform medical work. These nurses’ work cannot be praised more highly.

Without them, the death toll would have been far greater than it already was. They went above and beyond the call of duty to help soldiers and their country. I know nurses nowadays have it hard. I can't imagine what it was like for them back then. They must've been at least mentally stable enough to push through all the trauma and horrible scenes they experienced. That's extremely inspiring.
