Red Cross Kay: My Journey of Service in WWII: My Journey of Service in WWII
In Red Cross Kay: My Journey of Service in WWII, Katherine Peddle Dixon describes her journey in the Southwest Pacific as a “Red Cross Girl.” Kay ́s journey begins in 1943 when she decides to do her part for the war effort. Leaving farm-life behind, she heads to New York City and joins the Red Cross. In her two years as a recreation specialist, Kay experiences unfamiliar surroundings, sweltering heat, unceasing rain, unforgiving terrain, and unexpected dangers – but her enthusiasm, altruism, and dedication to raising the spirits of war-weary soldiers never falters. Red Cross Kay is an inspirational tale told by one of the unsung heroes of WWII.
