    Wow, Betty, there is so much that we don’t know about people when we meet them later in life!. What an amazing story and what great service you and all the other women did. Your life could never be ordinary after that..and it wasn’t!.

      Thank you Penny. It was a pleasure and honour to serve. The experience affected my choice of becoming a medical social worker and my understanding of what it is like to be a patient.

    Betty you are part of the history of the USA and your good deeds & those of others should be acknowledged, the majority of people would not have even contemplated going to such a dangerous place! It was an incredibly brave thing to have done. You gave those men.,’ hope’ when some had none, and your experiences will be with you all your life, whether they were good or bad, Bless you Betty.
