Description

This interview with Nicole Bernice Tyndale Thomas was recorded at the Southeast Veterans' Services Center in Washington, DC.

Thomas joined the United States Air Force in February of 1977 with hopes of becoming a flight nurse aboard a hospital aircraft. She entered the military as a 1st Lieutenant because of her education.

She lost the opportunity to go to flight school because it was discovered that she had sickle cell trait. This disappointment made her angry and depressed and she spent much of her remaining time in the military trying to get out.

Though she was disappointed early in her Air Force career, Thomas notes that she was able to be part of a unit that went on the planes to receive patients, and was glad of the professional autonomy she had as a military nurse. She is also grateful for the continued medical support she receives as a veteran.
