Investigating another group of unknown women who served in WWI.
Working at an Archive yesterday, I was going through a file of 75 to 100 carefully written responses - in beautiful cursive, using pen and ink on personal stationery - from women who had been contacted to volunteer.
All answered, "I am ready to serve."
Holding these notes, written 100 years ago, I imagined their voices, repeating as a chorus - "I am ready to serve."
I feel so fortunate to to touch this history - to hold it in my hands - and yes,
there is a story here.
