From a contemporary press report:
Bernice L. Brudner, 85, a longtime Rockville resident who came to the Washington area soon after serving as an Army nurse during World War II, died of liver disease December 15, 1999 at Montgomery General Hospital.
Mrs. Brudner, a native of Syracuse, New YYork, was detailed to a hospital on the Hawaiian Islands during the war. She moved to Washington a year after her discharge in 1946 and devoted her time to raising a family.
She was a member of the Women's War Memorial Association.
Survivors include her husband of 53 years, Benjamin Brudner of Rockville; two children, Philip Brudner of New Market, Md., and Mibs Brudner Parker of Oakton; a grandson; and two granddaughters.

Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
