Navy Nurses and World War I

1836 nurses served in the Naval Nurse Corps during World War I ,and 327 of those nurses were stationed at bases overseas.  What do you know about Navy Nurses?  Why not write in and share your knowledge.  Share something about navy nurses in a brief email to me, and I’ll post your information on our Society for the History of Navy Medicine website.  Pictures are welcome.  Write to me at

We are gearing up for more conference news. Next year we will be joining the Army Medical Department Center for History and Heritage for a conference focused on Medicine and World War I.  The conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas from March 22-25, 2018.  Start thinking now about contributing a paper; we will put out a call for papers soon.

About afinley41

I'm an author and college professor who works on French terrorists in the 1930s and 1940s. I'm writing a new book right now with Gayle K. Brunelle called "Vengeance: Vichy and the Assassination of Marx Dormoy." I'm also focused on the French Holocaust. In March of 2013 I'll take students on a study abroad called Paris/Auschwitz.
