In Army Nurse, Cherry has made the difficult decision facing all her classmates – should she enlist in the military or practice nursing on the homefront? She’s graduated from Spencer and earned the right to put RN after her name, and as an Army nurse, she is now Lieutenant Ames. The Army nurses are also soldiers, and endure a grueling basic training under the harsh Sergeant Deake (whom Cherry nicknames Lovey, much to his chagrin). No one knows where the Spencer unit will be deployed until they are shipped off without warning – to Panama City. Who is the mysterious old Indian whom Cherry and her corpsman Bunce find collapsed in an abandoned house? He is obviously very ill, but with what? Can Dr. Joe’s newly developed serum help?
