Celebrating and honoring those who have served both stateside and overseas in all aspects of the military. We at Nanny Jack & Co salute those who have proudly worn the uniform of the United States of America. When contemplating how to honor veterans today, we first thought to share never before seen letters from World War I, World War II, Korean War, and the Vietnam War but decided it would be better to share a sampling of these proud women. Alice Louisa Johnson Tyler was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1923 to James and Louisa Z. Johnson. She lived on Gold Street and matriculated through the Baltimore City Public School System. In 1944, she enlisted in the Women's Army Corps (WACs) and was stationed at Fort Des Moines, Iowa.
