Mrs. Moore, a native of Belhaven, N.C., comments on her early career as a U.S. Army nurse, particularly her duty during World War II. Of particular interest are her reminiscences of enlistment shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, arrival at New Zealand, duty in the Fiji Islands, and transfer to Calcutta, India. She comments on living conditions, medical treatment of soldiers, problems with the food in India, reenlistment, and post-war duty in Germany.
