A Vietnam War Nurse Reflects on Her Service

This week, in honor of Veterans Day, we're hearing from New Hampshire veterans about their time in the service. To kick off this series, a story of caring and deep rewards, from veteran Ginny Timmons of Boscawen.

Timmons was assigned to an evacuation hospital in Vietnam and cared for young men in intensive care. It was difficult, but she was committed to the role. "I loved the service," she says.


(Editor's note: We recommend listening to Timmons recall her time as an Army nurse.)
