Members of the 118th Unit, a group of Hopkins Nursing graduates who, during World War II, enlisted to support the effort. From Our Shared Legacy: “From 1942 through much of 1944, the 118th was ensconced in Australia, where they treated cases of malaria more often than battle wounds. … Their work became less comfortable and more complex when they moved on to Leyte Island in the Philippines.” Here, the nurses share a moment of calm on Leyte.
