Martha Cameron
Martha Cameron and Kathleen Flynn

Martha Cameron was 23 in 1941 when she graduated from nursing school in Jersey City, New Jersey. She was working in Jersey City when Pearl Harbor was attacked later that year, and she enlisted with the Army Nursing corps as a surgical nurse, later an anesthetist. Martha spoke with friend Kathleen Flynn, granddaughter to a friend serving at the same time during the war, about arriving in Normandy in early June of 1944.
