Silver fish aside, I found undamaged (okay there are some darkish red spots and other orangish stians on it but those are obvosly old) and still in good shape a small pocket new testiment. In the lower right corner is like a cross with US in the center surounded by a solid circle then Cadet nurse on the outside again that is also surrounded by a circle but this time not solid. On the inside is a place for name and adress and nearest relative. American Bible Society Instituted in the year 1816

I've been googling information but havn't found anything. I am rather curious on to what these where used for. Or rather the story behind books like these. With all issues with relgion and politics it seems kind out oout of place to find a US Cadet Nurse new testiment

The U.S. Cadet Nurse program educated nurses for the U.S. Public Health Service from 1943 to 1948. Distribution of New Testaments and prayer books to military and paramilitary recruits, trainees and cadets was very, very common in the 40's and many are surprised to discover still persists into today. As well as New Testaments, Strength for Service to God and Country was a devotional book distributed to millions of service members in WW II and after being revived and revised as an Eagle Scout Project is being distributed again today to military members. The Gideons distribute Bibles to military members; according to their Web site, the Gideons will supply, free of charge, a New Testament to every member of the U.S. Armed Forces and to patients at U.S. Veterans Administration hospitals, as well as to medical personnel working at such hospitals. The American Bible Society also continues to distribute thousands of Bibles to military members; they have distributed over two million New Testaments to service members since 9/11. All the devotional books and Bibles I have mentioned are distributed without a dollar of Government funding but are paid for entirely by donations, as was your Cadet Nurse Bible.
