MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - Ensign Julie Thomas, a navy nurse at the naval hospital, Capt. Patricia Netzer, officer in charge of the health care supply office in Norfolk, Va., and Capt. Nancy Simmons, senior nurse executive at the naval hospital, serve cake at the Navy Nurse Corps Birthday Ball at the Officer's Club May 7. The theme for this year's celebration, Nurses: Many Roles, One Profession, reflects the growing and expanding roles nurses face. At the naval hospital, this is compounded by deployments and training requirements that add to the stresses already come endured with being nurse. (Official Marine Corps photo by Pfc. Drew Barker)
