British War Cemetery and Memorial, Bayeux, Normandy

My mother was a QA (nurse in Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps) in Normany in 1944.

She didn’t talk about it very much. What can one say?

  • Thanks Edie, I appreciate it. Of course, a thousand thank you’s . What I meant was that as a young woman of 23 she saw and experiences things in those few years that were so heartwrenching that she seldom spoke of them at all. The photo is of my dad, during a visit to see friends in Normandy a few years ago. My mom died seven years ago, but her wartime experiences permanently forged in her a profound spirit of charity and compassion for others.

    What can one say? Speaking as a US Navy vet, and the daughter of a WAC medical tech, simply “You’re welcome.”
