Abstract Ms. Teuro (b. 1921) grew up in Hartshorne, Oklahoma. She joined the WACs in March 1943 and moved to Des Moines for basic training. She received additional training there in the cooks and bakers school. She was assigned to Camp White in Oregon, which was a training camp and also the site of a German POW camp.

After being discharged, Ms. Tuero worked as a cook for the Granite School District before retiring at age 71. Interviewed by Becky Lloyd. 28 pages.
