In January 1942, 11 Naval nurses and one Filipino nurse were taken prisoner by the Japanese.

Everyone must watch this video - they deserve better than they got! Boats
Note: there is a brief commercial on WGN before their story begins.

This is a must to review. These Ladies are remarkable. My heart goes out to them under the circumstances they had to endure. Boats

In January 1942, 11 Naval nurses and one Filipino nurse were taken prisoner by the Japanese.

They spent nearly three years as POWs in concentration camps where they continued to nurse the sick and injured.

They were never formally recognized by the U.S. government as heroes. But to the men they cared for, their service will never be forgotten.

The nurses became to be known as the 12 Anchors.

Their selfless service never stopped.

All of the nurses received the Bronze Star and a Prisoner of War medal.

WGNs Marcella Raymond has their story.

The writer of the book: This is Really War by Emilie Le Beau Lucchesi can be found on Google Books and Amazon.

It's amazing we didn't here this before now. My heart goes out to them for their sacrifice
and lack of appreciation they never got.

Thank you Ladies for all those who didn't give you the appreciation of your service!
