WE WERE YOUNG AND FEARLESS

 

My name is John Schrank, and I am a Vietnam Veteran.

My father was in WW2 France to Germany. He was in the Army and a T Sgt. who worked in the motor pool with munitions. He didn't talk about it... My wife's brother did two tours of duty in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot. After he retired, he worked for the Kennedy Center in Washington doing security work.

I KNEW I WAS MAKING HISTORY

I KNEW I WAS MAKING HISTORY

I was born in Chicago, Illinois, in October 1923 and became a member of the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) from 1944 to 1946.

I was a WAC and part of a special project for the Women in Military Service for America Foundation (WIMSA), serving in the hospitals with returning wounded soldiers during World War II.
