Helen Grace James won her honorable discharge from the U.S. Air Force this week — at the age of 90. It is a battle she fought for 60 years.
Helen Grace James grew up in Pennsylvania, where she worked her family's farm, and asked her mother to call her Jim. She played with toy trucks and boats, and gave the dolls she was given to her sister.
Helen Grace James' father served in World War I; she saw her cousins ship off to serve during World War II.
