WWII nurse in LaPorte gets to re-live dream of riding motorcycle


She’s used to taking care of others after more than 90 years but for one afternoon it was her turn to be taken care of by a group of fellow nurses.

Betty Hull, 91, served as an army flight nurse during World War II.

She even has scars on her leg from shrapnel wounds she received while riding a plane that was hit during the war.

She received numerous military awards for her service.

Fellow nurses have certainly warmed up to her during her stay at Settlers House assisted living, since she is a fellow nurse. She also has quite a spunky personality.

That's why they wanted to make sure she got her wish to go for a ride on a motorcycle around town.

It's been a dream of hers to re-live since she was a little girl.

“I don't know what else to say it just makes you feel good. That makes them happy, she is so happy about this,” says nurse Angie Bunton.

After she left the war, Hull worked at the LaPorte Hospital.

She then retired and worked at Arbys.

So she wanted to drive by Arbys as one of her favorite locations.
