We would like to kick off Women’s History Month with a birthday wish for a real history maker, Bobbie Ann Lane Fallon! Bobbie, who turns 100 on March 11, joined the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps a short while after the attacks on Pearl Harbor in 1941. She was sent to the University of Wisconsin to study Physical Therapy and was later assigned to work with amputees in France. After the war, Bobbie married her fiancé, Dale Fallon, who served in the Pacific Theater. The Fallons went on to have six children and a happy marriage spanning many decades.
