PAGE 12 (Two panels)
Panel 1: A “group photograph” panel of about a dozen U.S. Navy nurses in dress uniform, smiling and facing the camera. The hair, makeup, and uniforms should be in a style appropriate for 1943. Of them is a 20 year-old Hazel Gluck (see panel below). Her smiling face is surrounded by a circle to distinguish her from the rest of the nurses.
CAPTION – PSEUDO-NARRATION (1): And the presence of a U.S. Navy hospital meant the presence of U.S. Navy nurses. We were able to interview one of the survivors.
Translation (1): Die Errichtung eines Lazaretts hatte natürlich auch die Präsenz von Krankenschwestern der US Navy zur Folge. Wir konnten mit einer der Überlebenden sprechen.
Panel 2: An “interview pose” panel, showing HAZEL GLUCK (“Hazel”). In this panel she is a very aged, frail old lady with thick eyeglasses.
Hazel (2): I remember how when we were first posted to Motofupo, there was this lovely beach with beautiful water to go swimming in.
Translation (2): Ich erinnere mich daran, wie wir an diesem großartigen Strand von Motofupo baden gingen.
SUBTITLE – IDENTIFYING TAG (3): Lt. Hazel Gluck, USN, Ret.
Comment (3): “Lt.” is an abbreviation for “Lieutenant,” the third-from-lowest commissioned officer rank in the United States Navy. “USN” is an abbreviation for “United States Navy” and “Ret.” means “retired,” no longer on active service.
Translation (3): Lt. Hazel Gluck, US Navy, a.D.
