World War II veteran Charlotte Schwid will be celebrating her 100th birthday on May 22 at the Eagle River VFW Post 9785 in Alaska. The post is throwing her a big party, and they've asked us to recruit Military.com readers to send her a birthday card!
After graduating from the Riverside Hospital School of Nursing in Roanoke, Virginia, in 1940, Schwid enlisted in the Army and worked in a military hospital in Tidworth, England. She took care of D-Day patients near the end of the war, at a time when one nurse was assigned to 200 to 300 beds at a time.
