Agnes Sure enlisted in the U.S. Navy as a nurse in 1938. Her career took her to Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 and throughout the Pacific during World War II.
Listen to her fascinating story that took her from rural North Dakota to Pearl Harbor en-route to a twenty-two year career in the Navy and then time in Afghanistan with the World Health Organization.
Agnes passed away in 2015 at the age of 99. I met her on three occasions, she was truly what makes this nation great.
