“The Nurses of Pearl Harbor” (Warning:Image heavy post!)

Yesterday Samantha and I traveled to James Buchanan’s House, Wheatland in Lancaster,pa. There was a speaker who was the daughter of nurse who was at Pearl Harbor during the attack on December 7, 1941. The talk encompassed the stories of several nurses that were stationed at various hospital’s around the island. The speaker did not focus on just December 7th but about the whole lives of the nurses. The stories were heartwarming and told a story of courage.
