9/20/2020: A BIG thank you to everyone who listened to my presentation for the National Women's History Museum today. Just a clarification from one of the Q&A questions: The Army authorized aeromedical evacuations in late 1942; in early 1943 they became Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadrons (MAES). Two Navy nurses took air evac training in 1943 but it was not until December 1944 that the Naval School of Air Evacuation began its formal two-month training class. (see p.27-28, 37-38 of my book).
