U.S. Navy Veteran Wendy Linden is incredibly modest when talking about her three years in the service.
“I did nothing heroic,” says the Levittown resident, “but these men around me, they have done amazing things.”
Linden signed up for the U.S. Navy in 1983 after receiving some motivation from her cousin, who had been involved with the Blue Angels. As a Long Island native, she had hoped to be stationed close to home. Her “wish list” included several ports, from New England all the way to the Brooklyn Navy Yard... but instead she was sent to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
