Abstract

Account of one woman’s tenure as an Army nurse during World War II. Sibyl Germaine Coressel (Jerry) joined the Army in 1942 at the age of 32 because she wanted to take on an active role in the war effort, and she believed that her experience and talent as a nurse could best be put to use in the military. The letters she wrote to her mother, her brother and her sisters during her years in the service reveal her devotion to her family, her independent character and determination, and her resilience in the face of disappointment.
