WWI Honor Roll
Lancaster Co., Nebraska
Women in the Armed Forces



The women listed on this page were all Army Nurses unless otherwise noted and served when women historically were not given the recognition for their service as men were. They all proudly served their country and are being recognized today for their great importance to this country's history. I am proud to have had relatives that served in this unsung branch of the service and dedicate this page to their memory. I am especially proud that my G-aunt Pearl R. Culp was one of these women. ~ Kathie Harrison
