Foundation Releases a New Oral History
Highlight—Good Anesthesia in a War Zone: The Story
of the 1st Navy Nurse Anesthetist in Vietnam
Twenty-four hours—the amount of time the military gave many of those bound
for Vietnam to detach from their units, including five Navy nurses ordered to
report in September 1963. Among them was one who was a rarity even among this
elite group: Then-LCDR Owedia “Tweedie” Searcy was the first—and
at that time the only—Navy nurse anesthetist to serve in Vietnam.
