I believe I have these three photos - in a panorama - from left to right - even though the pictures were taken at different times - August/May/August. You can see that quite a few new items were added to the Medical Storage and more cabinets were added.

I had never thought about the fact that there had been nurses on Adak during 1943. The joke was that there was a "girl behind every tree" - evidently, there were some in the trenches. I can't get the full names - doctor's handwriting. . .

Our pride & joy. . . popular with the nurses. . .
