Freedom Fighters: Grace Miller

By Joan Hallmark

Grace Jones Miller had wanted to be a nurse as far back as she could remember.

Grace finished nursing school in 1940 and within two years time and the onset of World War Two, the young Pennsylvania nurse had joined the army nurse corps.

Within a short time, Grace was aboard a troop ship headed overseas.

The 42nd general hospital was set up in a former Australian nunnery to treat the wounded from the battles in the pacific and the Japanese bombings in Northern Australia.
