Brave women who enlisted in WWI! 22,000+ went to France! Pic you haven't seen before
Recently, I went to Fort Sam Houston here in San Antonio and took more pictures (most of them obscure and never before published) to show you just how marvelous these 22,000+ women were who traveled far from their homes to nurse wounded Doughboys and comfort the dying.
Please note the descriptions, many of them the originals on the photos. All are black and white and some have been reproduced over the century. But they show how courageous these women were to leave their homes, their towns and travel more than 3500 miles to serve their fellow Americans in need.
I hope you will read my novel, researched for decades, about them, HEROIC MEASURES. Find it here: http://amzn.to/1dWojVz
