Remember the heroes- Mary Catherine Smith

Originally from Indianapolis, Mary Catherine Smith was born in 1919. In her early 20’s she was sent to France with the US Army where she served as a field surgery nurse during the World War II. She worked under the command of General George Patton. Her experience was so unique and special and even though they went through a lot, she says if she had a chance to do it again she wouldn’t think twice. She didn’t get married until she came back from the service. Her labor in the US Army lasted for 3 years but the memories will remain forever.
