There’s another great blog out there by Rochelle Gridley, who’s gathering the stories of women who served from Bloomington, Indiana.
The blog is called “Women Called to Action” and she’s profiling the stories of women from all service branches.
Check out the site. And if you have information do share with her!
EvaAnne Johnson, a librarian in the Chicago area, has been doing a great web history of the women who served in the military from DeKalb County.
Those of you who have been following the blog know that my mother was from the greater Chicago area as well (Cook County).
Be sure to give her blog a follow! And if you’re related to a Chicago-area female vet, be sure to get her name on the honor roll!
We’re getting caught up on some of the stories you’ve shared with us, like this one from Deb Woolley about her mother.
Her mother was a pharmacist’s mate, and her story was featured on WBIR-TV in September 2020. She died Sept. 6, 2020 at 99 years of age.
Thanks for sharing!
We were so excited to talk with Ileana Najarro of the Tampa Bay Times about the WAVES and World War II.
Najarro was interviewing Helen Zirpiades (who is 100 years old!) about her experiences in the WAVES.
