Honoring Nurses


Nurse’s Memorial, Section 21, Arlington National Cemetery


Linda’s mother, Mary Batastini Hickson, was a nurse, and proud of it! So here is a shout out to her and all nurses, for this–National Nurses Week–and all the weeks of the year! During a visit to Arlington National Cemetery, we were deeply moved by the stylized statue of Jane Delano, pioneering nurse and founder of the American Red Cross Nursing Service, overlooking the section with the graves of 296 nurses who died during World War I.
