Nancy W. Habelt

In 1943 I was working for the Navy Department. I had always wanted to be a nurse, but couldn't afford the education then. I heard about the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps and jumpted at the chance to go to American University for nine months of classes. Then I went to Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. for my nurses training and more college classes. All the hosptials in the U.S. needed nurses due to World War II. Wed did so much to help our country and the hospital staffing. We trained just like all the other branches of the service. We are all in our 80s now and would like to be recognized in some small way before we die. I would be happy with a Cadet Nurse Flag or a medal. I gave up a good paying job at the Navy Department to help my country during the war.
