WWII Navy Nurse LT(JG) Dorothy Still

Lieutenant Junior Grade Dorothy Still, NC, USNR. Still was a Japanese POW during World War II from January 1, 1942, through February 23, 1945, when she and the other nurses, known as the “Sacred Eleven,” were rescued by American troops from the Los Banos internment camp in the Philippines. She and her fellow captured nurses established an infirmary in the camp, although they had virtually no medicine or supplies and continued to nurse the sick until Los Banos was liberated in February of 1945.
