Description:
Kathleen Harrod was a nurse on the 18th Hospital Train, one of almost fifty hospital trains used to transport wounded from evacuation hospitals in the combat zone to general hospitals in areas under Allied control during World War II. She achieved the rank of captain in the U.S. Army Nurse Corps and served in both the European and Pacific theaters. During this interview, Harrod describes an occasion when German planes strafed the clearly marked hospital train, setting the pharmacy car on fire.
