Female lieutenant in Medical Services of the Soviet army, 1944-45. Medal for Courage, two Medals for Battle Merit, Medal "For the Defence of the Caucasus". Russian women in wwII were strong, powerful and full of love of country.
Female Captain in Medical Services of the Soviet army, 1945. A woman such as this one saved one of my aunt's life as a child. She also shot dead two of her own who raped a local woman and warned the rest the same awaited them if anyone else touched a single girl or woman in the village or anywhere else.
