Kate Nolan, WWII Combat Nurse
#1

Hi Fellow Veterans & Friends:

 

I thought I would send the link below to some of you; which tells the story of those "Angels of Mercy" that attended our wounded during "the Bulge" and other battles......of whom little is mentioned when speaking of our Hero GIs....

 

Katherine is a native of my home town, Worcester,MA...went to nursing school here and lived a few doors from where I now live.

I know her, having attended several VBOB reunions together and on the 60th Anniversary Tour of Belgium; Dec 2004.

 

Here is a brief story of her service in WW-II.

We have 4 former Army Nurses in our Cent. Mass. Chapter-22,VBOB.

We cannot say enough and thank them for their selfless duty; at times under enemy artillery fire.
