"First Nurse to NASA's First Astronauts"


Dee O'Hara

Dee O'Hara was born in Nampa, Idaho in 1935.


Dee was with the first seven Mercury astronauts and continued on with the other astronauts through the Gemini, Apollo and Skylab programs. During the last Skylab mission, she transferred out to Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. The flight crews invited her back to participate in the Apollo-Soyez Test Program (ASTP) and the first shuttle flight in 1983. Dee saw all the launches from the first Mercury launch through the first shuttle launch. She says "I've been very lucky." (Taken from Welcome to NASA Quest , Women of NASA -  meet Dee O'Hara)
