Air Force Nurse at 19 - Honoring April Allen

Thank you, Don, for submitting April Allen to be featured as Secure America Now's Veteran of the Week!

"This is my sister, April Allen. She joined when she was 19 in 1967. She was in the Air Force and became a nurse. She took care of our boys that came back from Vietnam. She was a kind and caring person that had a bedside manner that made the wounded guys feel happy to be back home. She treated them all like the heroes they were. She passed away last month from Cancer. She, unfortunately, died alone in a home where none of us could do the same for her in her last weeks due to the virus! She will be missed to all that knew her. She was a hero as well! 🇺🇸"

Thank you, April, for your service!
