Our speaker, Agnes Lewis, "Ag” to her friends, was born and raised in Rockwell, Iowa.  After high school graduation “Ag” went to St. Margret's Hospital Nursing School, graduating in 1939.  She then joined the Army and after basic training in Colorado was sent to Ft. Smith, Arkansas.  In 1940 she went to Europe with the 105th Evacuation Hospital and followed General Patton’s 3rd Army until the end of the war.  She was recalled in 1950 to go to Korea for one year and was in Viet Nam for two tours, 1966-1967 and 1968-1969.  In 1974, after serving 28 years, Ag retired.
