World War II U.S. Army veteran and Nurse who served in the Battle of the Bulge. Lt. Katherine Flynn Nolan. Nolan, now 86, remembers, "You have to get to [the wounded] and start treating them for shock and stabilize them within an hour. We had to get them in that golden hour." The death rate in the field hospitals, which were assembled five miles from the front, was surprisingly low — less than 4 percent. http://www.HireaVeteran.com
Respect- I NEVER pass someone w/ a veteran hat on, without stopping to show my respect--thank the person, and to say "God Bless You" for your service & sacrifice. They deserve it!! My 5 yr old grandson does the same.
