Once More Unto the Bedside, Dear Emma

I don't know what Emma Gruel had been doing since June of 1917 when she returned from Germany. It's hard for me to imagine her resting for very long, but we hear nothing of her until a January 1918, when the Gazette happens to mention that, two weeks previously, Emma had returned to the nursing of soldiers. This time she was one of a 50-nurse unit stationed at a base hospital at Camp Cody in New Mexico.
