A WWII Vet Wins Another Battle

As a Marine in the Pacific theater, Fred Oerly had survived World War II. He had volunteered to serve as a forward observer for naval gunfire on hostile islands like Guadalcanal, Bougainville and Okinawa, and received both a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart.

“Everyone took time to recognize me as a person, not just a body with a problem that needed fixing”

I just want to let all the wonderful people in the Emergency Department know how much I appreciate the care they gave me today.

“Kind, professional and above all caring” — Praise for emergency department nurse

First of all, I would like to apologize for the delay in getting this note out to the appropriate person. However, it has been a very difficult time for our family and we can’t move forward with the grieving process without thanking a very special employee at Boone Hospital.
