Pink Hibiscus: An Army Nurse’s letter to her sister on December 7, 1941

If you like stories about love, war, and medicine, check out my Civil War time travel romance, LOVE ME FOREVER – a Civil War medical drama that takes place in 1862 in Virginia in a plantation turned into a hospital.

Pearl Harbor, Hawaii

December 7, 1941

7:30 a.m.

Dear Peggy,

I’m bustin’ with news to tell you, little sister. I only have a few minutes before my shift at the hospital starts, pink_hibiscus_couple_moonso bear with me. I don’t know where to begin. It all happened so fast. I met Jimmy at the Officers’ Club when I first got here last summer and the handsome Army Air Force lieutenant asked me to dance. The band was playing Moonlight Serenade and before I knew it he had his arms around me, holding me so tight I couldn’t breathe.

Then he kissed me.

Oh, it was so romantic. The warm night breeze blowing in off the ocean, the smell of pink hibiscus making me wild with desire, his hand reaching under my long evening gown and sliding up my thigh. Then he picked me up in his arms and carried me down to the beach and we…

7:45 a.pink_hibiscus_nurse_phonem.

Sorry, I got called away by the nurse-in-charge. She was worried about a patient wheezing and coughing. She thought it might be pneumonia. Just a couple of nurses on duty this morning, so she asked me to help her with paperwork. I was disappointed, seeing how I haven’t had much chance to use my nursing skills since I’ve been here. Still, Pearl is the best duty an Army nurse could wish for. We get a few pilots scraped up after a rough landing or with a bad hangover, but it’s mostly sunny days and balmy nights.

I bet you and Mom were all bundled up when you did this year’s Christmas shopping at Wanamaker’s. I love walking down Market Street with all the holiday decorations. The soft, white snow landing on top of the pretzel man’s cart. The hot cocoa with Mom’s fresh whipped cream. I miss you and the family so much, but don’t worry about me, I’m having the best time of my life. I’ve nearly worn out the soles on my new high-heeled pumps dancing every night with Jimmy.

Here’s my news, he…

7:55 a.m.

Something’s happening, Peggy, something awful. Sirens going off, a loud explosion, and everyone’s scrambling. I’ll write more later. I’ve got to get back to my patients. They’re jumping out of bed and yelling for their pants.

We’re under attack . . . oh, God, what’s happening?

======

11:30 p.m.

It’s over. For now.

A mad, insane day that I shall never forget . . .

But my job is just beginning. I wish I could call you on the telephone and hear your voice, tell you that I’m okay, but that’s impossible, so I’ll write everything dopink_hibiscus_nurse_clipboardwn as fast as I can. Here’s what happened earlier today on December 7, 1941 . . .

The second wave of the surprise attack lasted until nearly 10 a.m. I haven’t stopped since then and I’d still be racing from one patient to the next if the nurse-in-charge hadn’t insisted I get some rest.

First, I’ll give you detailed account before I grab a few minutes of sleep, then go back on duty. My thoughts are scattered, so bear with me.

By the time you read this, you’ll know the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on a quiet Sunday morning at 7:55 a.m. I was recording a patient’s vitals when a soldier with a broken leg asked me to help him stand up. Sweat beaded on his forehead and he looked real nervous. Said he heard something that didn’t sound right. Planes flying overhead that weren’t ours. I thought he was joking, then I looked out the big, square hospital window—

Oh, my God, Peggy, I don’t know how to describe what I saw. Planes roaring overhead with red suns emblazoned on them. Loud, ear-splitting explosions. Black plumes of smoke swirling into the sky like a death flower.

It was maddening. Fear choked my throat. My body went numb. Hot tears spilled onto my cheeks. I

wiped them away with defiance.

Nurses don’t cry.pink_hibiscus_nurse_soldier

I let go with a long shudder. I don’t know what came over me. Fear, I guess, but I was okay now. Duty came first. This was what I’d spent years studying for, watching, observing, the sleepless nights working in the emergency room in the big Philadelphia hospital. It all came together for me in that moment.

Thank God.

Within minutes, the wounded came pouring in. Carried in on anything sturdy enough to hold them. The sound of antiaircraft fire ringing in our ears, bombs exploding outside and shaking the walls. I don’t want to shock you, but you and those at home must know what we’re up against in this war. The pain, the horror. Men missing limbs. Bloodied wounds. Ugly burns with exposed flesh. Others in shock. We had no electricity, no elevators to transport the wounded to surgery. Not enough nurses. Supplies running out fast.

But we did it. We saved as many lives as we could and prayed for those we couldn’t.

I went from one patient to the next, never stopping until—

I saw him. My lieutenant. Carrying a wounded soldier on his back, blood splattered all over his uniform.

“Jimmy, Jimmy!” I yelled out, trying to get his attention.

pink_hibiscus_hugging“Kitty . . . ” He looked so relieved to see me it made me tear up. I could see in his eyes he wanted to hold me close to him, never let me go. I wanted to feel his warmth, smell his woodsy, masculine scent. Prove to myself

he was here, alive.

My patient came first.

After I stabilized the wounded man, Jimmy held me in his arms and pulled off my nurse’s cap, and then ran his fingers through my hair.

“Thank God, you’re okay, Kitty,” he said, his lips brushing my cheek. He told me we lost several battleships and more than a hundred planes, but that wasn’t going to stop him. He was going to get into the air no matter what he had to do. Drive all over the island until he found a P36 gassed up and ready to go.

He cupped my chin and said,  “I’ll be seeing you, babe.”

I smiled up at him. “I’ll be waiting.”

Then he left. I blew him a kiss. I knew what he was thinking. He had his job and I had mine. Whatever words and soft kissepink_hibiscus_flags we’d exchanged under the swaying palms would have to wait.

We were at war.

And God willing, we’d be together again soon.

But nothing will erase what happened here on this Sunday morning at Pearl Harbor, the sun bright yellow and hot. Then the sky became dark with enemy planes set on destroying us and our way of life. My heart is so heavy with the pain of what I saw today. The suffering and the dying. It’s my job and the job of every serviceman and woman to stop them before they reach our home shores.

You have a job, too, Peggy. Take care of Mom and Dad, and tell them not to worry about me. I know everyone will do whatever they can so our fighting men can return home safe.

I can’t wait until I see you all again. When this horrible mess is over, we’ll sit under the old apple tree and eat bonbons and I’ll show you the prettiest engagpink_hibiscus_kissingement ring you ever saw. Yes, that’s my surprise. Jimmy asked me to marry him.

Till then, little sister, pray for me. And our boys fighting what some say will be a long, hard battle. But we’ll win. We have to. For the sake of free men and women everywhere.

Love, your big sister,

Kitty

Excerpt from Chapter One of “A Soldier’s Italian Christmas:”

“American?” Her voice changed. “Oh, thank God,” she said in English.

Mack turned around slowly and saw a young woman holding a gun on him. She bent down and turned up the wick on the lantern sitting on the ground and light flooded the small courtyard. He didn’t breathe until he was certain she wouldn’t shoot him. Dark, beautiful eyes flecked with amber sucked the fatigue right out of him.

My heroine Kate in The Magic Christmas Train receives a letter years after the war from an army buddy of her fiance, who was killed overseas in the European theater. It’s that letter that sets into motion her trip back through time from 1955 to 1943:

On a cold December day in 1955, I got on a train to go back home for Christmas.

This is the story of what happened when I got off that train.

In 1943.

An old letter written after the war on army stationery brought me here. A chance to save the life of the man I loved. We were going to be married, but he was called up for active duty and was killed. The letter details why the mission went wrong. If I warn him back in this time, can I save his life?

Day 30 Kindle Scout Campaign: The Magic Christmas Train and LAST DAY to nominate my story

Last day for my Kindle Scout campaign for The Magic Christmas Train and what a journey it’s been.

Christmas on the home front during WW II was so different than what we know today. There were few if any live Christmas trees because of no manpower to cut them down; no new ornaments imported, and wrapping presents was discouraged because the government needed the paper.

Rubber anything was impossible to get–from tires to girdles. Sweets for the holidays were harder to make with sugar rationing. No outdoor Christmas lights.

But as it was so often said during the war, the light came from within the souls of the good people who never wavered in their support for the men and women who served in the Armed Forces.

I tried to show that spirit in my WW II time travel romance, The Magic Christmas Train, through the eyes of the folks in my little town of Posey Creek, Pennsylvania.

That Christmas season was a very special one for my heroine, Kate Arden. Like so many women, she lost her man in the fighting overseas.

But she never stopped loving him. And somehow, years later, she travels back to 1943 on a magic train to save him.

For the light in her heart for this special man never went out. Maybe that was the magic that made her journey back through time possible.

Day 29 Kindle Scout Campaign: The Magic Christmas Train and going back in time to meet the Troop Trains

Is your trip necessary?

Read the familiar poster hung inside the rail car during WW II. Civilians were encouraged not to ride the trains so servicemen and women heading to camp and overseas or going home on furlough could find a seat aboard the crowded trains.

The government moved more than 2 million men a month on trains.

The men got hungry, bored, restless, and missed home.

So the ladies of many small towns like Posey Creek,  Pennsylvania would meet the trains on their ten-minute stops so the locomotive could take on water. They served up cookies and coffee, newspapers, even razors to the men aboard the trains.

My heroine, Kate Arden, gets on the train in 1955, but when she gets off, she’s in 1943.

What happens to Kate is a chance to go home again . . .

. . . but can she change the future and save the man she loves from being killed in the war?

Find out in The Magic Christmas Train.

Day 28 Kindle Scout Campaign: The Magic Christmas Train and why women gave up their Girdles during WW II

 

Why would any woman give up her girdle in 1943?

Because it might save a soldier’s life.

One simple word: Rubber.

Before ladies went au naturel, you could buy a girdle from a mail order catalog for about $5.95. Not cheap. From what I can find out, that would be $85.00 in 2017.

They had fancy names like Renaissance and Parisienne and were stitched up with elastic, cotton, lace, boning, and hooks. And metal zippers.

Zippers disappeared, too.

You could get a half girdle for $4.88, but that did that mean you had half a figure under control?

Then the war came.

And every ounce of rubber was needed for the war effort. The Japanese had cut off all routes to the natural rubber suppliers, so no new or virgin rubber was available.

So ladies everywhere donated their old girdles to win the war.

And save soldier’s lives.

Day 27 Kindle Scout Campaign: The Magic Christmas Train and Letters from a War Zone

Dear Mom,

Today was like yesterday. Up before dawn, check your rifle, pray your socks were dry, and then go on patrol. The enemy could be anywhere, but what gets me through the days are your letters . . . and your peanut butter cookies. And the love that goes into making them . . .

My darling wife,

We lost two men on morning patrol. I wanted to cry when Pvt. Simkins bought the farm. He’d just gotten a package filled with his mother’s peanut butter cookies . . . I pray I’ll be home for next Christmas and I can kiss you under the mistletoe and bounce Timmy on my knee. Till then, I dream of you every night . . .

 

Dearest Sarah,

I’m on guard duty tonight, angel, but I had to write to you and tell you how much I miss you. We’ve had an awful week with the enemy shelling us nonstop and the captain getting busted up so bad they sent him home to his wife and kid, but it doesn’t stop me from thinking of you. It’s colder than hell here, but your letters make me melt inside like my ma’s warm molasses on biscuits . . .

Letters.

More important than anything to the men and women in the middle of a war zone. The snippets above could be from any branch of the service, but letter writing was so important to them they’d do it anywhere they could. A foxhole, a bombed-out church, a submarine.

Day 26 Kindle Scout Campaign: The Magic Christmas Train and the Battle of the Videos

Video # 1:

The Magic Christmas Train from Jina Bacarr on Vimeo.

Video # 2:

The Magic Christmas Train tells the story of a small town in December 1943 from Jina Bacarr on Vimeo.

Writing and talking about World War II has a big advantage. There is a lot of vintage material available for visual graphics and making videos. You can see how I used vintage photos I colorized to tell the story of The Magic Christmas Train in video #1.

In video # 2, I took a more modern approach and used characters that had a 1940s “feel” about them, but are recent photos*. I admit, I put an undershirt on my hero because a bare chested hunk didn’t look right (though it worked for Clark Gable in “It Happened One Night” years earlier. When he wasn’t wearing an undershirt, sales plummeted).

So, here’s my question: do you prefer a video with original 1940s photos or newer photos with the feel of the era? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Day 25 Kindle Scout Campaign: The Magic Christmas Train and the item of clothing not rationed during World War II

Hats.

Clothing was rationed. Shoes. Rubber galoshes impossible. All rubber items, including tires, were not available. Period.

So unless you were a duck, your feet got wet in the rain or snow, or you wore synthetic rainboots.

But hats? Now that was a different story.

Hats had no restrictions.

Feathers, veils, bells, ribbons, hoods, hanging pearls, velvet draping . . . the list goes on.

So the next time you watch a film from the 1940s, check out the hats and enjoy!
