|June1917 Nurses of Johns Hopkins Base Hospital 18|
Prior to boarding USS Finland in New York
Ready to Serve is my new show of Women's WWI Service in the Military
This story is drawn from the experiences of Maryland nurses who served in France -
1917 - 1919, with the Johns Hopkins Base Hospital 18.
Base Hospital 18 sailed from New York in June 1917 with the convoy transporting THE FIRST American Troops
I have created a monologue from their letters to give life to the nurses' little known experiences.
While caring for serious battle injuries and the damages
of deadly gas, they faced unexpected personal discomforts and relentless harsh weather,
but they kept their spirits up by encouraging each other and their patients with laughter and warm friendship.
