Rosa Gorga, the oldest female veteran from World War II, has passed away. She was 108 years old.
Gorga believed that it was important to serve her country which is why she enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps in 1944. She was a staff sergeant who worked as a medical assistant in caring for wounded soldiers. She was honored for her service with a Victory Medal.
She passed away on January 12, a little more than a month before Corporal Frank Buckles, the oldest veteran from World War I, died at the age of 110.
