BIOABSTRACT

Annie Edith Sherrill Pozyck (1920-2007) of Concord, North Carolina, served in the Army Nurse Corps during World War II. After her discharge, she continued her nursing career, retiring from the Salisbury, North Carolina, VA Hospital after over twenty-five years in the profession.


BIOGRAPHY

Annie Edith Sherrill Pozyck was born in Concord, North Carolina, on 30 January 1920. After graduating from Concord High School in 1936 she went to work as nursing assistant at Concord Cabarrus Memorial Hospital. In August 1938, she went into nurses training for three years at Mercy Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In November 1942, Pozyck was inducted into the Army Nurse Corp (ANC) as a second lieutenant and was based in Charlotte, North Carolina. The following spring she was sent to Stark General Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, and she married there in June. In summer of 1943 Pozyck was transferred to Seattle, Washington, and then on to Camp Stoneman, California. At Camp Stoneman, the nurses received overseas training and were shipped out to Australia in December 1943. There, Pozyck served briefly with the 133rd General Hospital in Sydney, preparing wounded soldiers for transport. In January 1944 Pozyck returned to the station hospital at Camp Stoneman.

Later that year, Pozyck was assigned to the 73rd Field Hospital and went to Fort Ord for additional overseas training. In February 1945 she arrived in the Philippines, where she helped set up a hospital in the town of Tacloban. Pozyck remained in the Leyte, Philippines, until her husband was liberated from a prisoner of war camp in June 1945, whereupon she was transfered back to the U.S. Pozyck was discharged at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in November 1945 as a first lieutenant.

After her discharge, Pozyck and her husband moved to Lawrence, Massachusetts, where she worked at Lawrence General Hospital. In December 1952, she and her sons relocated to Concord, North Carolina, and Pozyck began working again at the Concord Cabarrus Memorial Hospital. After two years, she was hired by the VA hospital in Salisbury, North Carolina, and worked there until her retirement in February 1980. Annie Pozyck died on 1 September 2007.
