I remember a young red head nurse corps ensign Jill Joann Jensen who would use J3 as her initials....she became the charge nurse on a combo urology/ortho ward while I was at NRMC CAMPEN, CA....we had one of the Navy's first co-ed barracks across the street from the hospital...the hospital was first class in it's day....
