Legislation Introduced to Support Heroic World War II Cadet Nurses

Posted 2 months ago by Elaine Crain

On April 3, Representative Cheri Bustos (D-IL-17) and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) introduced the bipartisan, bicameral legislation, United States Cadet Nurse Corps Service Recognition Act (H.R. 2056/S. 997). This legislation recognizes and honors nearly 120,000 Cadet Nurses who served in the United States Cadet Nurse Corps during World War II and provides them with honorable discharges, medal privileges, and veteran burial benefits

To move this legislation forward, we need your help! Please take action NOW by sending a message to your Representative and Senators today, urging them to cosponsor and pass the United States Cadet Nurse Corps Service Recognition Act (H.R. 2056/S.997).
