The Marine Corps In World War Two: Story Of Hospital Ship, Nurses Told On ‘Halls
Carl | January 29, 2014
Tribute was paid to the work of Navy nurses, corpsmen and medical officers by Rear Adm. Luther Sheldon Jr. on this week’s “Halls of Montezuma” radio show in a short talk which preceded dramatization of the mission, of the USS Solace in taking wounded Marines off Tarawa.
Rear Adm. Sheldon said this Navy hospital ship is the second to be commissioned under that name. The first was launched during the Spanish-American war and was used on mercy missions in World War One.
He predicted that much more would be heard of the work of the present Solace before the end of this war.
