RALEIGH, N.C. Seven decades after earning the awards, a 92-year-old former Army nurse is finally being honored for her service during World War II.

The North Carolina Army National Guard says Mildred Warner of Edenton will receive her Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal and her World War Two Victory Medal at a ceremony in her hometown on Saturday.

Warner enlisted in the Army Nurse Corps following the attack on Pearl Harbor. After duty at Fort Eustis, Va., and Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C., she volunteered for duty oversees and was assigned to a military hospital in Australia.

Warner completed her service at a hospital in Butler, Pa., where she tended many soldiers wounded in the Battle of the Bulge.
