Flying Tigers nurse Jane Hanks dies - Flying Tigers News
...Emma Jane Foster was one of just two women who joined the 120-member AVG in 1941, at a time when the United States was (officially, at least) neutral in World War II. "I was an oddball in those days," she liked to say. She already knew China, for she had talked her way into a Penn State student exchange program through which she studied in Canton in 1935 and 1936. She had earned a master's degree in nursing at Yale by the time AVG recruiters sought her out.
She was known simply as "Red" to her fellow Flying Tigers, and preferred that name to the end of her long life. Hanks married John Petach, a fighter pilot she met on the ship carrying both of them to Burma to join the AVG. Petach and his bride were among a small group who agreed to stay in China for two weeks after the AVG was disbanded in 1942, helping Gen. Chennault train Chinese pilots. ...
