Here's an article about a woman I served with. We were both in the Army, stationed at the 330th ASA Company (AVN FWD), which was a unit operating the Guardrail system. She was a pilot. I was a Voice Intercept Operator. She was the Army's first female helicopter pilot, and the Army's first female fixed-wing pilot. I was proud to serve with her.
After we'd served together, I tried to get her to be my reenlisting officer, even though we were stationed in different parts of the USA. Unfortunately, there was no way to pull of a reenlistment ceremony unless we were in the same place.
I've never had children, and never wanted to have children, but I always thought that I'd name a girl Sally, after Sally Murphy and Sally Ride.
I've often wondered what became of Sally Murphy. Now, thanks to this article, I know!
I found this video clip in which Sally Murphy talks about the unit she and I served in together.
