Personal History:

Katelyn Ann Lewindowski, born in Grand Haven Michigan to polish immigrants on November 5th 1930. Her father served with the US army in world war II and hearing his stories and reading his letters left a big impression on her. Hearing of the Germans treatment of her home country she developed a firm sense of Americans as protectors of the downtrodden.

She went to school with science in mind…however she was steered toward a career in nursing early on. It was all well and good with her. She knew it was her best chance to get into an active role in the military. Her chance came just out of highschool when the Korean war broke out. She lept at the chance to serve as a nurse with the 8076 Mash unit. She served the length of the conflict from 1950-1953, later transferred to Germany. She developed a taste for being one of the guys, while she was stationed in country raising in rank to Sargent. However her advancement stalled post war as she tended to balk at her treatment by civilian male doctors, she became disillusioned and left for the private sector.

She likes having a good time and has a tendency to take things a bit to far in her off hours. Has a soft spot for injured or homeless animals and has been known to take care of them from time to time. Woe to the tent mate that finds themselves with a new three legged raccoon as a pet.
