Finding the stories of the women and nurses who were at Pearl Harbor in 1941 happened when I least expected to find them. Here’s one that I found thanks to a late night Google search and the San Diego Union-Tribune!
Army nurse recalls attack on Pearl Harbor
ERICA WARREN – Staff Writer
December 6, 2003
FALLBROOK — A little more than six decades ago, U.S. Army Nurse Corps 2nd Lt. Harriet Moore and two friends weighed the option of being stationed for two years in the Philippines or two years at Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
The decision was easy, and on Nov. 9, 1941, the 22-year-old Moore arrived for duty as a registered nurse assigned to the maternity ward at Tripler General Hospital near Hickam Field in Hawaii.
“We thought we were having a two-year (holiday-style) tour of duty at taxpayer expense,” Harriet Moore Holmes, now 84, said Tuesday in an interview at her Fallbrook home. “We were looking forward to it immensely.”
Less than a month later, on Dec. 7, notions of a leisurely tour of duty were gone and Holmes and her friends’ lives were forever changed.
A paranormal romance audiobook about an unsolved mystery and tragic love read by Mary Castillo
When we last saw Dori Orihuela in her first thrilling paranormal mystery, Lost in the Light, she received a shocking message slipped to by her high school flame, Gavin Salazar.
In this short paranormal romance audiobook, Girl in the Mist, we pick up where we left these two lovers as Gavin sweeps Dori off to a romantic weekend in Carmel, California. Their charming cottage, hidden in the cypress trees, holds a dark secret. A young woman appears in the mist, not knowing her name or how long she’s been dead. When Dori tries to find out what happened to this broken young spirit, everyone she encounters refuses to speak of what happened.
Dori also has a few secrets of her own that she’s hoping never to tell Gavin … even if holding onto them could destroy the best thing that’s ever happened to her.
Girl in the Mist can be enjoyed as a stand-alone paranormal romance audiobook, but it is part of the Dori O. Paranormal Mystery Series.
