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.

The Women's Memorial annual Address Label package was mailed in late April. Many
thanks to those of you who've already donated to this major fundraising effort.

and who would like to use that option, please click

It's not too late to give.
