This year marks the 75thanniversary of the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps, a heroic group of nurses who served in World War II –and these nurses are theonlyuniformed corps members from that war who haven’t been recognized as veterans.
You can help change that and give these nurses their due.
The bipartisan United States Cadet Nurse Corps Service Recognition Act was just introduced in the Senate and would right this wrong and finally honor these nurses’ valiant service to our country, but it needs your help to move forward!
These nurses filled an urgent need during the war efforts by ensuring that there were trained healthcare professionals at homeandabroad – and paved the way for how nursing and nurse training evolved in the US in the process.
Ten different bills have been introduced since 1995 aiming to give these nurses the credit they deserve – and none have passed.This new bipartisan bill, introduced by Senator Warren (D-MA) and Senator Daines (R-MT), is our best chance to honor nurse cadets and the critical role they played.
