In World War II, Lucy was an Army nurse at Bataan and was evacuated from Corregidor by submarine at the last minute. She went back to the South Pacific as a Flight Nurse in January 1944 and helped fly out prisoners of war until February 1945. She married an ex-POW who never fully recovered his health from his imprisonment by the Japanese after the Bataan Death March, but Lucy and Dan raised four children, and Lucy made a new career as a social activist, championing the causes of her special charges: POWs, disabled veterans, widows, and women in general. Her story is an inspiring account of a remarkable woman.
