This is a love story that began in the shadow of the Enola Gay in 1945 on Tinian Island in the Western Pacific during WWII, and culminated in Jacksonville, FL over 60 years later. The core of the manuscript is the actual letters written by a nurse on that island, during the war and from Japan after the war. These letters were stored in an attic for many years and almost forgotten. The rest of the story is part truth and part fiction of the happenings that surrounded the production of the manuscript
The Military Women's Memorial honors and tells the stories of women, past and present, who serve our nation.
