Freed U.S. Navy Nurses Homeward Bound

Eleven U.S. Navy Nurses, rescued in February 1945 from the Las Banos internment camp on Luzon, Philippines, pause at Pearl Harbor on the way home from three years of hardship under their Japanese captors. The nurses wore U.S. Army uniforms picked up in the forward area. This image also shows traditional Hawaiian leis draped about their necks on arrival.
