Her grandparents helped form this country and sought out the better in people. With that said, Joan Rauls joined and served the United States Army and trained and worked as a surgical nurse. After four years of service with the military, she continued to help her community and eventually, Joan retired from American Savings Bank – all while raising her children. She became a wife and mother to six children.
