Lt. Elsie Ott’s Top Secret Mission:

The Pioneer WWII Flight Nurse Behind Aeromedical Evacuation (MEDEVAC)

Wednesday, July 7th
$5 per person | Limited to 100 spots

In his newest book, Jeffrey Copeland explains the complicated origins of something that most military members now take for granted—the promise of swift evacuation from the battlefield if wounded. Lt. Elsie Ott and her NCO Sam Rigazzi were two Army Air Forces medical professionals who made the first long-distance aerial medical flight, from India to Walter Reed Army Hospital in 1943. These courageous people experienced snipers, enemy fighters, their plane catching fire, and a myriad of other complications during their service.
