November 1942. “Nurses in training. Babies’ Hospital, New York. A graduate nurse (right) watches student Susan Petty prepare a hypodermic for a patient. Strict adherence to doctors’ orders is something every probationer must learn.” Photo by Fritz Henle for the Office of War Information.
To honor those who have served our country and who continue to serve, for this Veterans Day, here is a photo from 1946 (World War II) of a Visting Nurse Service of New York nurse, baby, mother and grandmother. Note the service flag in the window - one star for one family member (father) in active duty.
