Bonnie June Smith Hewitt

I entered  The Cadet Nurse Program March 17 1944 after graduating from High School at Farley New Mexico at age 17. I enrolled in the Minnequa School Of Nursing, Corwin Hospital in Pueblo, Colorado, affiliated in Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado. I spent the last 6 months in Boise, Idaho, at The Veterans Memorial Hospital. I graduated in March 1947. Married and raised 3 sons. I did not work until 1962. Worked in surgery at Sacred Heart Hospital, Eugene, Oregon, and until 1974 and then in a Urology Office in Eugene, Oregon until I retired in 1992. Nursing was my life, and I thank The Cadet Nursing Program for a wonderful education. It was a great program. I am now 87 years of age, enjoying retirement at my home in Eugene,Oregon, and staying pretty active. No one seems to know we ever existed, and I would very much like to be recognized. I also would like to contact some of my old classmates. There aren't many of us left and like the service men in WW2 we are falling fast.
