Thank you, Florence

I prefer nurses over doctors. After a lot of years being a patient with a lot of visits to clinics and hospitals that is my preference.

Although I have never served in the military, I almost became a Marine. My life would have been radically different.

Many relatives, however, did serve, from the American Revolution to the Second World War. Some did not make it back home. So thank you, Florence Blanchfield, a pioneering nurse.
