    • Obviously you're not going to send out your non-combat trained, non-combat uniformed, obviously not armed medics when bullets are flying. These ladies had a totally different battle to fight. They ran to the wounded and dying when they needed it most, and that deserves hefty respect.

    • Fact check: This picture was taken on January 15th 1945. Seven months after D-Day and was not taken on the beaches of Normandy, but rather on the Beaches of Southern France. Still a neat retro picture though.

    • I’ve just looked it up. This isn’t Normandy, France. In fact it is Southern France, about 7 months after D-Day occurred. The mountains seemed off to me for Normandy. That means this brave nurses helped the push inland from the “forgotten landings” of southern France!

    • I mean, cool photo. It should be passed around more, but theres a reason the Higgins boat full of men is a more famous photo: they were facing an onslaught that many would not survive through. Many who did were wounded, mentally and physically. Women should learn about the medi-corps tho...

    • The fucking power in her stride. I get that they weren't dodging gunfire or anything but it's not like they weren't as essential as the soldiers. They weren't trained for battle so they didn't storm the beaches. The soldiers weren't trained medically so they didnt patch up their buddies. Cooperation
