Entering the military through ROTC, Captain Josephine Taylor enjoyed the way in which basic training both challenged and also instilled confidence in her. While she did not anticipate having to deploy to Saudi Arabia, she rose to the challenge as a transportation company commander (762nd Transportation Company). Constantly worrying about the welfare of her unit took a toll, as did the Scud missile attacks, the “breathtaking” heat, and the daily sandstorms. She returned home “emotionally drained,” though grateful for the strength of character that the military had helped her to develop.
We honor you, Josephine Taylor.
