R.I.P. Mildred Manning

Lt. Mildred Manning

Last week Mildred Manning, the last Angel of Corregidor, went to her eternal reward in her 98th year.  She was one of 77 nurses (66 Army, 11 Navy) captured by the Japanese when the defenders of Corregidor capitulated in 1942.  The New York Times has the story; it well worth your attention.

Hand salute, Lieutenant, rest in peace.
