"Regarding the Japanese Red Cross, the wording about subservient women making good nurses is offensive and should be reworded to account for time and place."
-- a visitor, December 2001

"This is a first-class, top-notch, professional production as an exhibit. This is also true of the catalog. 4+ work!"

"Thank you ever so much for this wonderful portrayal of necessary yet little known history of caring while warring. Japan and Russia are now allies to one another as well as to our USA. Far too many died to achieve this miracle. Far and away more were injured and carried their wounds to their graves. So many loved ones remained haplessly behind. God blessed us with your great display of healing work."
-- a citizen, Navy nurse, wife, and mother, November 2001

What a wonderful surprise!"
