Celebrating a hero! Molly McLaughlin, 87, started nursing school on the day World War II ended – and now she is retiring. http://s.3m.com/wnZx1Y
Celebrating a hero: Molly McLaughlin, 87, started nursing school on the day World War II ended, at the dawn of the age of antibiotics, and is ending her career treating victims of AIDS. In her 67 years as a VA nurse, she’s cared for veterans of the Spanish-American War, vaccinated thousands of children with the then new Salk polio vaccine, and was among the first to report the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease.
