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.
