She then joined the Navy as a Lieutenant in the Navy Nurse Corps, serving on active duty for 29 years at a variety of duty stations, including wartime service on the hospital ship USS Sanctuary and Da Nang during the Vietnam War and as Director, Nursing Services on the hospital ship USNS Comfort during the first Gulf War.She died from the after affects of a rare brain tumor caused by agent orange and was the most decorated Navy nurse on active duty when she was retired. Her nickname in the Pentagon was the "Irish Gladiator" because she never gave up attempting to do what was right.
