She was the first woman to rise to admiral in the Navy and 46 years after her promotion into the ranks of flag officer, Alene Duerk passed away at the age of 98 years old. Duerk spent her career in the Navy's nursing corps, serving during three major wars and eventually rising to the Navy's top nurse position. "I didn't go into the Navy for a lifetime -- I went in for six months," she once said. "But I had an amazing career and have a lot of good memories. I hope I did my duty."
