Wartime.  At just 24 years old, Alicia Reynoso was a nurse in Comodoro Rivadavia, assisting the wounded in the South Atlantic conflict.

In this regard, the VGM said that “on this day that I received my DNI with the ex-combatant legend, Heroine of the Malvinas, I feel that all this time, that I was NN among my peers and among all, despite the fact that I had my DNI and my name, in this story I was born”. “I was born on July 9, 1955 and I am reborn today as a veteran, a heroine of the Malvinas, on May 11, 2022. I do not feel like a heroine at all, but a patriot and a fighter for their rights,” add.

In 1982, Reynoso and 13 other comrades of his were stationed at the FAA Relocatable Hospital in Comodoro Rivadavia. There they treated the wounded who were evacuated from the Islands and from other points in the South Atlantic Theater of Operations (TOAS). For years, nurses fought to be fully recognized as war veterans.

This new recognition did not come at any moment, but on the eve of World Nursing Day, which is commemorated every May 12. The outcome is not accidental either: after an extensive trial of the State, Reynoso was fully recognized by Justice as a Malvinas War Veteran on May 7, 2021, just over a year ago.

On April 2, 2020, on the 38th anniversary of the South Atlantic Conflict, Ámbito told the story of Reynoso, who at that time was vaccinating older adults against the flu in Entre Ríos, during the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent restrictions.
