This Navy nurse is working at the Naval Hospital Great Lakes, Illinois during the first year of American involvement in the Vietnam War. At that time, this hospital was one of the newest and largest in the Navy. During the fighting in Southeast Asia over 11,000 patients were treated here, many arriving only four to six days after being wounded.
