Nursing history, Oregon to Washington D.C.

Some time ago, we posted a little information on Oregon nurse Doris Burnette Harris Merritt, servicewoman with the 46th General Hospital in World War II and accomplished oil painter. This week, her family contacted us again to let us know that Doris has become a founding member of the Women in Military Service for America memorial (WIMSA) in Washington, D.C.

So, in celebration of Doris, Oregon's nursing history, and all the women who have served this nation in times of war, we now recognize the nurse corps of the 46th General Hospital, shown here at Ft. Riley, Kansas (click for a larger image):
