This Day in History: Jane Kendeigh, flight nurse
On this day in 1945, a flight nurse lands at Okinawa. Jane Louise “Candy” Kendeigh had already made history just one month earlier when she made a similar landing at Iwo Jima.
Kendeigh was the first Navy flight nurse to land in an active Pacific combat zone.
The young nurse had gone through intensive training before she was dispatched to the Pacific. That training was no picnic, covering everything from first aid to the effect of high altitudes on concussions and other wounds. She and other nurses were taught how to fight in hand-to-hand combat on the ground, if needed. They learned how to handle a crash landing in the water.
It wasn’t enough to survive and to know how to swim. Flight nurses had to demonstrate endurance, speed, and the ability to tow a victim for a specified distance.
Kendeigh was then just a 22-year-old woman. A press release would describe her as “108 pounds of green-eyed charm and efficiency,” but she must have been tough. She was among the first of the Navy nurses to finish flight training and travel to the Pacific.
Her actions on March 6, 1945, would go down in history.

The reduction gears and steam turbines under construction at the General Electric Plant, circa March 1942.
Tumblr media
Based on the date and the fact USS Iowa (BB-61) and USS Missouri (BB-63) were the only Iowa Class Battleships to receive General Electric gears and turbines, these are most likely for USS Missouri.
Tumblr media Tumblr media Tumblr media
There are four sets of double reduction cross-compound geared turbines, with each turbine set driving a single shaft. “They offered almost 10-1 reduction to allow the turbines to run at much higher and more efficient rpm. These are some of the most critical components of the powerplant and one of the things which allowed long ranges in US battleships."

Note that they are double helix which eliminates axial thrust while providing the quieter running and increased strength of helically cut gears.

yk, when people say “they have a mouth like a sailer”, have we maybe considered they don’t mean cuss words? As in, aren’t the Navy notorious for being either flamingly gay, or just prison gay? Sus, but I’m not complaining
