Americans in Wartime Experience

Elizabeth Lewis

World War II

Elibeth Lewis served her country as a member of the United States Army during World War II.  She was a surgical nurse and served aboard the hospital ship Emily Weder in both the Atlantic and the Pacific.  The ship was named after the first army nurse killed.  After the war, Ms. Lewis continued her career as a nurse.  She said during this interview that she saw more during the couple of years serving as an army nurse than in the rest of her time as a civilian nurse.

Ms. Lewis wants everyone to be grateful to be an American, to be thankful for what we have and to always fight to keep it.If you have any biographical data, information or pictures regarding the service of this veteran, please contact us using the "Add Info" button below.
