On Veteran’s Day we take the time to recognize those who sacrificed for their country, who put the needs of the greater good above their own. In honor of this day, Chickasaw.TV created this series of videos which highlight the special achievements of Chickasaw veterans.
And it's amazing to hear the stories of these two strong women below.
Beaulah Shavney relives her experiences as an original member of the Women's Army Corps during World War II and explains how her Chickasaw heritage inspired her to always do her best. During her time in the WAC, she earned the World War II Victory Medal, Good Conduct Medal, the WAC Service Medal and the American Campaign Medal. Beulah died February 22, 2014 at the age of 91.
Chickasaw elder Thelma Chincie Ross was a World War II Code Talker Administrator.
We cannot thank you enough for your service!
