Shirley Frank O'Keefe

I graduated from Syracuse Memorial Hospital in June 1945. By then the war was over, so I served by staffing the hospital during my training. Some of my classmates went on to a stateside, Army or Navy facility during an active cadet period. I chose to serve at home by working on Obstetrics and caring for active servicemen's wives. I chose to leave the Corps when my fiancee returned home from active duty overseas in the European theatre of action. We were married and soon began our family. Several of my classmates (there aren't that many of us left), also served in the corps.
