Her courage and devotion to duty was acknowledged by a letter of commendation from Brigadier General Gary Voellger, USAF. Rosa B. also cared for troops wounded in the Vietnam Conflict and during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.At the request of U.S.Congressman George Nethercutt, the flag of the United States of America was flown over the Nation's Capitol to honor Rosa B.
