Abstract

There are data reported in psychological and sociological scientific literature concerning the physical and sexual abuse of members of the US Military Services with a focus on abuse of females. An extensive search of that literature found little evidence that military nurses had experienced physical or sexual abuse. An oral history project to collect accounts of wartime experiences of military nurses is currently ongoing from an institution in the western United States. A secondary analysis of data finds that project participants included almost no reports of such abuse. Rather, there were many reports that nurses were respected and protected from harm during the time of their military service.
