Re: Nursing history

If I'm not mistaken (and I could be... ) I think I've seen the movie that
David is looking for, "Flight Nurse," offered for sale on eBay.  Not that I
would unduly advertise eBay's services, but I've found some stuff there

Good luck, and thanks for the leads on two cool-sounding books!  Have a safe
