Nurses have served with distinction in wartime since Florence Nightingale went to the Crimea.
Women often accompanied their husbands to battle during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, caring for the sick and wounded.
Although not officially given officer status until 1920, Army nurses served in the Spanish-American War and World War I. As officers, thousands of nurses served in subsequent wars, distinguishing themselves by their heroism, devotion to duty, and sheer tenacity of spirit.
