    One could argue that she belongs in the military section but:

    Actually, this sub-forum was created so that civilians like Ms. Chiwy who played a role in WWII could be recognized. She proved that courage wasn't the exclusive attribute of those in military service.

    I saw a great many post about her on Friendface. Quite a woman, no doubt.

    Was reading that they are creating a documentary to be released on Oct. 15. Wonder if it will be available on Netflix or Amazon? Was also interested to find that she was mentioned in Ambrose's book and the series being known as "Anna the nurse."
