Meet Catharine Deitch.
Catharine served in the WAAC(Women's Army Auxiliary Corps) from December 30, 1942 to August 9, 1943. She then served in WAC(Women's Army Corps) from August 9, 1943 to November 24, 1945. Catharine Deitch was an Administrative Specialist as the WAC Detachment First Sergeant at Headquarters Army Air Forces India, Burma Theater, Calcutta, India.
Catharine resides at The Armed Forces Retirement Home, Washington, D.C. We first met this incredible and delightful lady seven years ago. During one of our conversations, Catharine shared that each and every day is a blessing, and that as she has passed through her entire life, God has been her copilot.
Catharine hardly ever misses a game of Bingo at the Community Center, Armed Forces Retirement Home. She loves to win! Always dressed to the "nine's" and adorning a glowing smile, Miss Catharine will become 101 years young on December 3, 2020. It's an honor that Catharine Deitch is a Storyteller in our latest book, "Remembering With The Heart, Stories by America's Finest."
