Five Navy Nurse Corps officers assigned to Navy Medicine Training Support Center (NMTSC) and Navy Medicine Education, Training and Logistics Command (NMETLC) recently visited the San Antonio Brookdale Assisted Living Facility to wish Blondina Porter, a World War II Navy Nurse, a happy 100th birthday. Porter was honorably discharged from the Navy as a Lieutenant in 1948. According to her son-in-law, Porter's most challenging assignment was being stationed on Attu in the Aleutian Islands after the island was retaken from the Japanese.
