WE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING!!
So said the many nurses who served in WWII
Nurses are so often invisible, but so essential to medical care. This need was no less important in WWII when nurses cared for wounded American soldiers all over the world. Seventy-nine women from Muskegon went to war as nurses and served all over the world. The USS Silversides Submarine Museum will honor the memory of these women with an exhibit that will open 17 November 2014 at 6:00 p.m. The exhibit features film from the era, descriptions of nursing activities, and a variety of recruiting posters. Admission is $5.00 for the exhibit opening and allows access to all exhibits in the museum. The exhibit will continue through February 22nd, 2015.
Come spend a morning or afternoon commemorating women whom WWII veterans called “angels.” Also coming in January and February: Theatrical Synergy Productions will perform a play depicting the nurses of Vietnam. The play is entitled, “A Piece of My Heart.” More information will be available on the museum website: www.silversidesmuseum.org
