Florence Waters

I was a U.S. Cadet Nurse in 1944 and 1945 and completed my nursing at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in Denver, Colorado (1945).

A group of us VA nurses contacted as many as we could and got a bill passed in Congress that allowed nurses that worked in V.A. or government hospitals to add the years of service in Cadet Corps to their retirement -- if they were employed by federal government.

We were invited to attend the 50th anniversary of Cadet Nurses in Washington, D.C.

We did this before computers, but were able to contact many V.A. nurses around the country.

If there is any way to help or be a part of this group, please contact me.
