Hi everybody,

I have been looking for a really long time the names of the 12 Navy Nurses that served on USS Relief in the Pacific.
The only information I got until now is that Ann Bernatitus (from NNC) joined the hospital ship in November 1944 as Chief Nurse Assistant, but I don't know who are the others.

Do you have any idea who could help me to find this information ?

Thanks a lot in advance Wink

Hi Alex,

I found two nurses who also served on the USS Relief during WWII. Sophia G. Monteville and Mildred Terrill. There are some interesting recollections of their experiences aboard this hospital ship available online:

Letter from LT Sophia G. Monteville, NC, USN to Mrs. Kenneth W.A. Miller about her experiences aboard the hospital ship USS Relief (AH-1) during World War II.

LCDR Mildred Terrill, NC, USN
Personal recollection of nursing on the hospital ship USS Relief during World War II, with generalized observations about hospital ships.

Maybe one can also find out the names of the other nurses, but at the moment I have no time to do a more intensive research.

Greetings,
Katy
