Name: Dee (Delores) Deeter

Place of Birth: Chicago, Illinois

Personal History: I grew up during WWII. It always stuck in my mind that I wanted to serve in some way. I came to Denver in 1959 and worked at a VA hospital.

Place of Recruitment: Denver, Colorado

Branch of Service: U.S. Air Force 1961-63

Class: Captain

Military Occupation: Surgical nurse; taught corpsmen surgical techniques and how to set up field hospitals

Service History: Tachikawa AFB in Japan for two years. I talked two of my roommates into joining me because I was a coward and they needed more nurses. Halfway through this, my husband and I decided to meet up in Hawaii to get married in 1962. I wish I had stayed in the Reserves and I wish I had kept my uniforms, too.
