From 1968 to 1970, she was stationed at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX and worked at Wilford Hall Medical Center. She provided medical care for soldiers returning from Vietnam. It was a rewarding experience to be there for her fellow patriots, and being young herself it was an emotional experience to tend to so many young men. April was proud to have served her country and provide medical care for our American heroes. For many years she worked at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital in Medical Records. Before anything else, the light of her life was her son, Adam Krone. She was a devoted mother and grandmother to her 2 grandchildren.
