Nursing stint in Iraq changed Gloria Vignone

March 18, 2011

Gloria Vignone admits to feeling “bittersweet” about her tour as a nurse in Iraq back in 2006-07.
“Sometimes when you are here, you want to be there, and vice versa,” the Franklin, Ma. native was saying earlier this month. “The camaraderie with your fellow soldiers is unbelievable. All we saw were trauma cases over there, a lot of blood and amputated limbs. We had one soldier who lost 60 units of blood and he lived. His buddies came in and donated blood to save his life. To know that you helped save a soldier’s life is a feeling you never forget.”
