Ann Elizabeth Robinson Houck passed away February 1 in Tacoma, Washington., after suffering critical injuries when she was hit by a bus in a crosswalk while walking her dogs. Ann was commissioned a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army after completing the Army Reserve Officer Training Corps program. She deployed with the 47th Combat Support Hospital from September 2005 to June 2006 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. After completing her time in the military, Ann worked as a staff nurse at Madigan Army Medical Center in the mother/baby unit.

    I went to nursing school with Ann…and was in ROTC with her. I have a lot of fun memories with her from school. Sorry to hear of her passing.

    I went to the Officer Basic course with Ann and then we were stationed at Madigan together on the Mother-Baby ward. I will never forget her. She was an amazing friend, nurse, soldier.
