    03 December 1956: The first nurses (all males) reported for airborne training.

    In the 1950s, a handful of Army Nurse Corps male nurses-many of whom where anesthetists-became jump-qulified. Some of these officers were attached to special forces units. Second Lieutenant Robert M. Stauffer and Captain Patrick J. Ferry were among the first Army Nurse Corps officers to qualify for this demanding role. The twosome, assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, attended Airborne School in 1956.
