This week we honor Army Veteran Pearl A. Domma. Pearl served during World War II from 1942 to 1946.

During Pearl’s time serving, she faced challenges. In Normandy, a German pilot attacked the hospital where she worked. When Pearl was relocated, those hospitals were also bombed. Pearl served overseas for 22 months.
